Robert Macfarlane
Robert Macfarlane

Robert Macfarlane joined the faculty as an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in summer 2015. He earned his BA in biochemistry at Willamette University and his PhD in chemistry at Northwestern. Macfarlane’s research is focused on developing a set of design principles for synthesizing new inorganic/organic composite materials, where nanoscale structure can be manipulated to tune the emergent physical properties of a bulk material. These structures have ...
