Materials Science & Engineering
Faculty Mentor: Professor Chad A. Mirkin
Liban Jibril received a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of California, San Diego. His research focuses on the development of new techniques for patterning materials on the micro and nano-scale. This research incorporates recent advances in patterning using soft materials such as ‘ink-pens’ for deposition onto a surface. This research has potential applications in the micro/nanofabrication, semiconductor, and energy sectors.
