The Department of Physics is delighted to welcome its newest faculty member, Jed Macosko. Jed comes to us from the University of New Mexico. He received his B.S. from MIT and his Ph.D. from UC-Berkeley.
Dr. Macosko studies protein motors and machines, mapping their potential energy surfaces. Surveying and mapping the potential energy surfaces of protein machines is essential for understanding their function and for developing drugs to halt their activity.
Dr. Macosko wowed the department with his exceptional demonstration of teaching during his interview here.
