Keith A. Brown

Keith Brown is an Assistant Professor (ME, MSE, Physics) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University.  He holds a PhD from Harvard University.

The Brown group is an interdisciplinary research program at the intersection of nanotechnology and soft materials with three goals: (1) Learn how to make novel materials by merging the strengths of top-down patterning and bottom-up assembly. (2) Investigate how mesoscopic order affects the behavior of soft materials such as polymers and proteins. (3) Apply these lessons to make new materials and devices that leverage hierarchical structure.
