Michael Zwolak is the Group Leader of Biophysical and Biomedical Measurement at NIST. He holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Caltech and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech. He has made seminal contributions to the theory of molecular and nanofluidic devices, self-assembly, and biomolecular metrology, including setting the theoretical foundations for rapid DNA sequencing with electronic sensors embedded in fluidic devices and discovering a scaling theory to capture quantitative behavior of ionic transport within all-atom molecular dynamics. His current focus is on developing scalable, manufacturable sensors for diagnostics and illuminating molecular physiology, as well as advancing the state of the art in biomolecular simulation and machine learning.
