Michael McBride is a 3rd year graduate student in the Reichmanis Research Group. He was born in Arizona, but spent eight years overseas in China and Malaysia. In 2014 he graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. While at UA, he worked on designing and fabricating electrochemical residue sensors (ECRS) to measure chemical contaminants in micron- and submicron-sized structures. At Georgia Tech, Michael is co-advised by Elsa Reichmanis and Martha Grover. His current research focuses on modeling the process-structure-property relationship in organic polymer thin films using P3HT and organic field effect transistors as the model system. He is a part of the IGERT: Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion Traineeship program.
