Dr. Don DeVoe, a Mechanical Engineering faculty member, recently gained the rank of full professor from university President C.D. ?Dan? Mote, a promotion that takes effect July 1, 2008.
Professor DeVoe serves as the director of the Maryland Microfluidics Lab, where researchers study and develop micro and nanofluidic technologies to enable effective biomolecular analysis. Dr. DeVoe?s research interests include microfluidic systems for bioanalysis and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).
After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of California Berkeley in 1997, DeVoe won the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award in 1999 and the NSF Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2000.
As a faculty member at Maryland, Dr. DeVoe has taught ENME 462: Vibrations, Controls and Optimization II; ENME 808U: Microfluidics and BioMEMS and ENME 808E: Introduction to MEMS (via ITV).
