Associate Professor, Chemical & Biological Engineering, Tufts University

Matthew Panzer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering at Tufts University in Medford, MA. He obtained an Honors Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with Distinction degree from the University of Delaware, and earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Minnesota under the direction of Prof. C. Daniel Frisbie with a thesis entitled “Polymer Electrolyte-Gated Organic Field-Effect Transistors.” Before coming to Tufts, Dr. Panzer spent two years in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT as a Postdoctoral Associate in the laboratory of Prof. Vladimir Bulović. He has been the recipient of a Massachusetts Clean Energy Center Catalyst Program Award (2012), a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, an IGERT for Nanoparticle Science & Engineering Graduate Fellowship, and the Eugene duPont Memorial Distinguished Scholar Award. In 2014, Prof. Panzer received the Recognition of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (ROUTE) Award from Tufts University. His current research interests are focused on novel materials and architectures for realizing solution-processed optoelectronics, including supercapacitors, solar cells, thin film transistors, and light-emitting devices.
