Rebecca Anthony

Associate Professor

Mechanical Engineering (ME), College of Engineering

Engineering Bldg, 428 S Shaw Ln Room 2453


Rebecca has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota (2011). Before that, she attended Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota where she majored in Physics (2003). Her research interests include plasmas for synthesis of semiconductor nanostructures, gas-phase processing and functionalization of nanostructures, and aerosol deposition of functional films. The applications ... for these nanostructures and materials range from energy-oriented devices like light-emitting diodes and solar cells to biological imaging agents.
