Donald J. Sirbuly
Donald J Sirbuly is an Assistant Professor in the Department of NanoEngineering and Materials Science and Engineering Program at UCSD. He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from UCSB in 2003 under the supervision of Prof. Steven Buratto. His graduate work was on the synthesis and photophysical properties of nanocrystalline silicon. He carried out postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Prof. Peidong Yang where he worked on the optical and electronic characterization of one-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures. He was then awarded the Harold C. Graboske Jr. Fellowship at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in 2006 and later become a staff scientist at LLNL in 2008. His work at LLNL was on the development of novel chemical and biological sensors. After joining UCSD in 2009 he has been interested in low-dimensional nanostructures for applications in sensing, biodiagnostics, energy conversion, and imaging. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award and the Hellman Fellowship at UCSD.
