Christopher Wallin is a PML/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received a B.S. in Physics, Mathematics, and Economics along with a B.S.E.E. from North Dakota State University and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell University. His doctoral research focused on developing single molecule spectroscopy techniques in nanofluidic channels for genetic and epigenetic analysis. Christopher is currently working with Robert Ilic to develop new methods to measure the mechanical properties of ultrathin films.
