Daniel Feldheim - 1999 Young Investigator Award

Since 1997, SEAC Young Investigator Award winner Daniel Feldheim has been on the faculty at North Carolina State University where his research has centered on solid state and molecular devices and sensors, rational design of colloidal superstructures and analytical chemistry in small volumes.  Feldheim received his B.A. in Chemistry in 1989 at San Jose State University.  He did his Ph.D. research with Prof. C. Michael Elliott at Colorado State University, where he worked on both fullerene chemistry and the interactions of small molecules with polymer-modified electrodes.  His NSF Post-doctoral Fellowship was with Prof. Thomas Mallouk at Pennsylvania State University, where he developed layer-by-layer inorganic polyelectrolyte/Au colloid thin film assembly and characterization techniques.  He recently received a Research Corporation research innovation award.
