Principal Investigator

Sidy Ndao is currently an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) since the Fall of 2012. Before joining UNL, he worked as a postdoctoral associate in the Chemical Engineering Department and in the Institute for Soldiers Nanotechnology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He completed his Ph.D. studies in Mechanical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2010 and received both of his B.S. and M.E. degrees from The City College of New York in 2005 and 2007, respectively.
