Update: I will be starting the Bhamla Lab at Georgia Tech this Fall (2017), in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.

Open Positions: We are looking for curious-minded and passionate researchers, from undergraduates to postdocs, to join our team. Our research interests cover a wide range of topics: frugal tools for science and global health, extreme and ultra-fast organismic biophysics, interfacial fluid dynamics, and  experimental soft-matter physics. To apply, please send a copy of recent CV, a brief summary of your projects, and a short statement of your research interests.

About Me: I am Saad Bhamla, an Assistant Professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Before this, I was a Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University, working with Manu Prakash. My postdoctoral work contributed to frugal science  (a 20-cent paper centrifuge `paperfuge‘) and development of instrumentation with applications in biophysics and global health. My background is in soft matter, particularly rheology, thin-film dynamics, and soft biological materials. I received my PhD in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University. My thesis advisor was Gerry Fuller. I received my Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.
