Kevin Shebek received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State University. His research is focused on investigating the self-assembly of nanostructured polymers and other soft materials. Kevin utilizes super resolution microscopy to image these systems below the optical resolution limit, allowing the in situ observation of assembling systems at nanometer resolution. Understanding these systems will allow for the rational design of new polymeric materials.
