Associate Prof. Gang Cheng joins the department
Dr. Gang Cheng, PhD from University of Washington Seattle (2009) joins the Chemical Engineering Faculty as an Associate Professor with tenure. Prior to this appointment at UIC, Dr. Cheng was an Associate Professor and Assistant Professor at the University of Akron. Dr. Cheng was also an adjunct professor of Integrative Medical Sciences at Northeast Ohio Medical University. Dr. Cheng’s group is engaged in multidisciplinary research (polymeric materials, biosensing, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry and electrochemistry) centered on zwitterionic polyelectrolytes by exploring the connections between new polymer chemistry/physics and applications. Over the past seven years, Dr. Cheng’s group has made significant contributions to the field of biomaterials by designing and studying novel zwitterionic polyelectrolytes for drug delivery, biosensing and antimicrobial coatings.

Assistant Prof. Shafigh Mehraeen joins the department
Dr. Shafigh Mehraeen, PhD from Stanford University (2011) joins the Chemical Engineering Faculty as an Assistant Professor. Prior to this appointment at UIC, Dr. Mehraeen was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT. After two-year postdoctoral career at the Center for Organic Electronics in Georgia Institute of Technology, he received the MIT postdoctoral fellowship and worked in the Chemistry Department at MIT since then. His research has focused on developing new methods to explore dynamics of directed self-assembly of sub-10 nm particles with single particle positioning resolution, predict the role of donor-acceptor interfacial properties on charge generation and energy losses in organic solar cells, and explain the impact of materials disorder on charge transport properties of organic semiconductors. Dr. Mehraeen has authored…
