Heather Hunt, PhD

Program Director, Associate Professor


Dr. Hunt’s work explores the interfaces between surface chemistry, structure, composition and bulk, physical properties of advanced materials for optics, electronics and environmental applications. Using principles of rational design and self-assembly, she designs and characterizes novel, nanostructured materials for optoelectronic devices.

“In a STEM field, your skills are cutting edge for about five years. Our students need to be lifelong learners in order to stay current, especially if they are looking to take their career in a new direction.”

Bin Wu, PhD

Program Director, Professor


Dr. Wu is an internationally-recognized expert in the design and management of manufacturing and supply systems.
