Assistant Professor Andrea S. Carlini to join Chemistry Faculty

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at UC Santa Barbara enthusiastically welcomes Assistant Prof. Andrea S. Carlini, starting this summer 2022!
Dr. Carlini gained her Ph.D. (2018, NSF awardee) in Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of California San Diego under the guidance of Prof. Nathan C. Gianneschi. Her doctoral thesis work on "Dynamic Biosynthetic Polymers for Myocardial Tissue Engineering" was supported by an NSF GRFP Fellowship. In 2019, she joined Prof. John A. Rogers' research group (Northwestern) as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Querrey Simpson Institute for Bioelectronics (QSIB).
The Carlini Group focuses on breaking down barriers between endogenous biochemical signals and exogenous soft materials to fabricate smart biomedical devices. Specifically, Dr. Carlini's lab aims to synthesize stimuli-responsive moieties for sensing disease and injury, fabricate structurally dynamic platforms that provide quantitative feedback for disease surveillance and treatment, and investigate 4-D behavior of macropolymers.
