Pramod Mathai is a CNST/UMD Research Scientist in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B. Tech. in Aerospace Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, and a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is interested in applications at the interface of physics, control and information theory. His doctoral research focused on understanding how reduced order models of sub-systems can be interconnected to reproduce whole system behavior in applications such as heat dissipation in electronic chips and iso-electric focusing of proteins. Before returning to the CNST as a CNST/UMD Research Scientist, Pramod developed microfluidic and electrokinetic techniques for manipulating colloidal nanoparticles while working as a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group and as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Bioengineering Department at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is currently working with Samuel M. Stavis to develop optical measurement methods and instruments to simultaneously image and track the motion of nanoscale objects in fluidic environments.
