and Simulation of Nano Mechanics and Materials
|Dr. Donald E.
Ellis, Professor of Physics & Chemistry
at Northwestern University, and member of NU's Materials
Research Center, and Institute of Environmental Catalysis.
He received his B.S.(1961), M.S.(1964), and Ph.D.(1966)
degrees from MIT, spending two years on the Physics
faculty at Univ. of Fla. before joining Northwestern.
Don is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and
member of the American Chemical Society, Materials Research
Society, and Brazilian Physics Society; awards received
include Sloan Fellowship, Fulbright Scholar (Netherlands),
Nordita Visiting Prof.(Sweden), NAS/USSR Exchange Scholar,
Fulbright Scholar (Brazil). He is currently Visiting
Professor at Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Fisicas.
Don works in the cross-disciplinary Materials Theory
area with current emphasis on bioceramics, macromolecular
and nanoparticulate structures, electroceramics, and
catalytically active interface and surface systems.
Atomistic simulations and Density Functional electronic
structure analyses, in conjunction with experimental
collaborations form the foundation of the materials
design and analysis effort of the Ellis group and collaborators.
