Professor Rabin's research program focuses on nanoscale structures and their interaction with their chemical and physical environment. His laboratory will develop synthetic strategies to make useful nanoparticles, nanowires, and nano-structured thin films. Areas of interest include: (1) chemical sensing and molecule-nanoparticle interactions; (2) advanced materials for thermoelectric energy generation; (3) applications of nanoparticles as biomarkers for imaging, diagnosis, and repair; (4) porous anodic alumina scaffolds; and (5) molecular and nanoparticle transport in microfluidic devices.
Professor Rabin received a B.A. degree in chemistry from the Technion, Haifa, Israel, an M.Sc. degree in chemistry from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehobot, Israel, and a Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA. He completed postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and at the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the University of Maryland in 2007.
He received the NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award in 2012.
