Principal Investigator:

James Dickerson

James Dickerson

James Dickerson received his B.A. in physics from Amherst College. He earned his M.S. and Ph. D. degrees from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1999 and 2002, respectively, where he studied under Emilio E. Mendez. From 2002 to 2004, Dickerson held a postdoctoral research fellowship at Columbia University, where he worked with Irving P. Herman. Thereafter, he joined the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vanderbilt University as an Assistant Professor. In 2011, he was promoted to Associate Professor of Physics with Tenure, and in 2012, he was promoted to Associate Professor of Chemistry. In 2013, he joined the Department of Physics at Brown University as Adjunct Associate Professor.

Postdoctoral Scientists:

Masih Darbandi

Masih Darbandi

Masih Darbandi received his PhD in 2007 from the Freiburg Material Research Center (FMF) in Freiburg, Germany, where he worked on semiconductor nanoparticles. Thereafter, he spent one year as a postdoctoral scientist in the Department of Chemistry, Ruhr University-Bochum, also in Germany. There he studied metal organic frameworks (MOFs). Next, we completed at three-year postdoctoral position in the Physics faculty of Duisburg-Essen University, Duisburg, Germany, where he studied transition metal oxide, magnetic nanoparticles. Since the fall of 2012, he has been a postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA. His research project is on the fabrication and the characterization of freestanding films of ceramic nanoparticles via electrophoretic deposition.
