John G Ekerdt
John G Ekerdt
Professor and Dick Rothwell Endowed Chair in Chemical Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering
ekerdt@utexas.edu
+1 512 471 4689

Expertise: Dr. Ekerdt's research is on the surface, growth and materials chemistry of metal, dielectric, ferroelectric, and polymer thin films. We seek to understand and describe nucleation and growth of films and nanostructures, their structure-property relationships, and site-specific reactions that lead to their formation. The programs are motivated by applications in electronic materials, energy and sensors. The research programs are highly interdisciplinary and involve collaborations with faculty in chemical engineering, physics and electrical engineering, and researchers in industry.
