Suchol’s work includes the use of soft materials mechanics and device engineering in the development of chemical and biosensors for health and environmental monitoring.
Suchol Savagatrup is an Assistant Professor in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Department. His research interests sit at the interface of responsive soft materials science and device fabrication for applications in biosensors and environmental sustainability. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from UC Berkeley and UC San Diego, respectively. And he completed his postdoctoral study as a Ruth L. Kirschstein NIH postdoctoral fellow at MIT. His work focuses on novel designs of chemical sensors using functional polymers and complex liquid colloids for the detection of foodborne pathogens, biomarkers, and environmental contaminants.
