Professor David Pope
David Pope teaches Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Pennsylvania. Dave has a B.S. in Applied Science from the University of Pennsylvania, MS and Ph.D. in Materials Science from California Institute of Technology. Dave's research projects include study of deformation and fracture of intermetallic compounds. His lab is investigating the deformation and fracture mechanisms in a number of singlecrystalline intermetallics. His group is studying the relative strengths of boundaries using the coincidence site lattice model to describe the boundaries.
Marylin Huff is Lecturer and Director of the educational laboratories in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at the University of Pennsylvania. She has over 15 years teaching experience in Chemical Engineering and currently serves on her local (K-12) school board. Dr. Huff earned her bachelor’s degree at Texas A&M University and her PhD at the University of Minnesota, both in Chemical Engineering. She spends most of her time working with students in laboratory classes in chemical engineering and biotechnology.
Robert Bucki is a Senior Research Investigator at the Institute for Medicine and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania where he studies aspects of lipid biology and the effects of polyelectrolytes on antibacterial agents. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. in physiology from the Medical University of Białystok in Poland and did postdoctoral work at the University Paris-Sud in Orsay, France.
