Professor, School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy
Sandwip Dey received his Ph.D. in ceramic engineering from Alfred University in 1984. He joined the ASU faculty in the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering in 1987 and is currently a professor in the materials science and engineering program of the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy, and is affiliated with the Center for Interventional Biomaterials and the Department of Electrical Engineering.
Dey's areas of expertise encompass processing science of nanoparticles, nanowires, and epitaxial/polycrystalline films of metals and ceramics by VLS, co-precipitation, sol-gel, MOCVD, and ALCVD and their integration into devices for electronics, energy, or theranostic platforms for neoplastic diseases. Guided by computations, point defect chemistry, statistical design of experiments, and advanced characterization techniques, the central theme is on the understanding and control of the inter-relationships between processing-nanostructure-property-reliability.
