Prof. Douglas B. Chrisey received a B.S. in physics from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1983 and a Ph.D. in engineering physics from the University of Virginia in 1987. He spent the next 17 years at the Naval Research Laboratory, mostly as the head of the Laser Processing Section. After spending one year as the deputy director at the North Dakota State University Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, he joined Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a professor of materials science and biomedical engineering. Currently, he is the Jung Chair of Materials Engineering in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at Tulane University, with adjunct appointments in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Tulane University and at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Material Science Department. His research productivity has resulted in more than 400 citable publications and 9,000 citations and an h-index value of 48/59 (ISI Web of Science/Google Scholar). He has edited or co-edited 15 books and has 18 patents. He also serves as a scientific advisor to Nanotherapeutics, the Chief Technology Officer for Nano Solutions and is President of Omni-Metrics. His research interests are wide ranging and include the novel laser fabrication of thin films and coatings of advanced materials for electronics, sensors, biomaterials, functional tissue engineering, and for energy storage. The new materials were used in device configurations for testing and typically had an improved figure-of-merit. He is considered one of the pioneers in the field of pulsed laser deposition and was the lead inventor of MAPLE processing technique (matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation). He is currently publishing in areas of metallic nanoparticle fabrication, biosensing, bionanotechnology, tissue engineering, stem cell processing, ceramics, and polyamorphism.
