Konrad Rykaczewski is an assistant professor at School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy at ASU. He received his BS (2005), MS (2007) and PhD (2009) in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology under supervision of Prof. Andrei Fedorov. Prior to his appointment at ASU, he was a research scientist at MIT working with Prof. Kripa Vanarasi’s group and NRC postdoctoral fellow at NIST. His current research interests include fundamental studies of nano/microscale thermofluidic and interfacial phenomena, novel in situ and cryogenic electron and ion beam microscopy methods, and nanoengineering of functional surfaces with special wettability for a variety of applications.
