Brad Rupp focuses his research on the manipulation of microscale objects in novel electrical systems. He is currently developing optoelectronic technology to print 'inks' of various micro- and nano-materials for use in applications such as microelectronics, solar cells, and optical materials. Brad's previous research focused on the control and crystallization of microscopic soft materials using non-uniform AC electric fields. This included the rapid assembly and repair of ensembles of colloidal particles into perfect crystals as well as the control and characterization of anisotropic dielectric particle behavior in electric fields. Dr. Rupp earned a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toledo.
