Faculty Q+A: Jeffrey Catchmark, Agricultural and Biological Engineering

Abstract:
What exactly do you teach at Penn State?
I teach BE 303: Structural Systems in Agriculture, will teach BE 489: Biological Engineering Design starting in the spring, and am working on a graduate course in biologically derived nanomaterials.

How did you find yourself at Penn State?
I worked in industry for ~9 years before joining PSU. I accepted a position as associate director of the Penn State Nanofabrication Facility in 2000 and became the head of the facility in 2003. Given my interest in agriculturally derived materials, I applied for a tenure-track position in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering in 2007 and have been an associate professor there since.
