  • Biography

    Susan B. Sinnott is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Florida. She received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Iowa State University in 1993. After working as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow in the Surface Chemistry Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory, she became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Kentucky before moving to the University of Florida in 2000. Her research uses theoretical and computational tools to study the design, processing, and properties of materials. Problems of current interest include polymerization and thin film growth through particle-surface deposition, electronic structure and stability of metal oxide ceramic grain boundaries, physical, chemical and electrical properties of carbon nanotubes, including their use in nanoelectromechanical systems, and the structure and stability of metal semiconductor interfaces. Prof. Sinnott has published over 50 articles in peer-reviewed technical journals and has given over 60 invited presentations at technical conferences and institutions. She has also assisted in the organization of several sessions and conferences in her field. She is the North American Editor of the Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Recent awards include the University of Florida Materials Science and Engineering Faculty Excellence Award in 2002 and 2003, and a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Fellowship in 2000.
