Dr. Harnett received the Ph.D. in Applied and Engineering Physics in 2000 from Cornell University in Dr. Harold Craighead’s lab studying integration of nanomaterials into microfabricated systems. After a 1-year postdoc working on electron beam lithography at Cornell, she joined the staff of Sandia National Laboratories, working in the Microfluidics and Advanced Microsystems groups, then moved to the University of Louisville as an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2006.



Shafquatul Islam

Ph.D. Student

Shaf is studying the effect of enzyme activity on conductivity at electrode arrays. The application is a sensor that can identify the most efficient variants of enzymes for turning lignin into biofuels.
