Honors and Awards:  American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Sharon Keillor Award for Women in Engineering Education - 2008, Council of Chemical Research (CCR) Diversity Award, Fellow of the Society of Plastics Engineers - elected in 2002, NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award - 1991, DuPont Young Faculty Award - 1989

Research Expertise: Polymers | Nanofabrication and Nanostructured Materials | Electronic Packaging and Interconnection | High Performance Energy Storage Devices

Bidstrup-Allen's research group works at the interface of chemical engineering and materials science, focusing on the design and synthesis of polymeric materials for a range of electronics, optical and biological applications. The development of new dielectrics for microelectronics and packaging has been of primary interest. This work has been extended to the fabrication of low-cost MEMS packages. More recently micromachining techniques have been developed to produce high performance current collectors with controllable architectures for energy storage devices.
