Julianne Holloway
Assistant Professor
Ph.D., Drexel University

Julianne Holloway has joined the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering this semester as an assistant professor of chemical engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy.

She earned a doctoral degree in chemical engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia before spending the past three years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, where she expanded her explorations into bioengineering, including cell biology and drug delivery.

Holloway’s research spans across several disciplines primarily chemical, biomedical, materials and mechanical engineering.

She is focusing on the development of technologies and treatments for remedies to injuries, degenerative diseases and other physical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Within that field, she is concentrating on pursuit of advances in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Her goal in that area is to contribute to discoveries that help facilitate regeneration of these tissues to restore the body’s natural mechanical functionality — providing new and better ways to repair damage to knees, hips, the spine and other parts of the body with similar musculoskeletal architecture.

She’s looking forward to engaging in cross-disciplinary approaches to research with faculty and students in a diverse range of engineering and science disciplines.

“I’ve always benefited from working in labs with very multidisciplinary groups. Collaborating with people from different backgrounds fosters innovation and creativity,” Holloway says. “I hope to bring that kind of working environment into my own lab.”

Additionally welcome the following new faculty in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy:

Shuguang Deng

Shuguang Deng

Shuguang Deng
Professor
Ph.D., University of Cincinnati

Shuguang Deng is a chemical engineer who develops new adsorbents, catalysts and membranes for sustainable energy and clean water applications. Deng’s group is also actively involved in conversion of algae to biofuels and bio-products. Deng has 12 years industrial R&D experience with Sinopec and BOC, and was the Bob Davis Professor at New Mexico State University before moving to ASU. Deng was awarded the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Energy Conservation in 2012.

Hyunglae Lee

Hyunglae Lee

Hyunglae Lee
Assistant Professor
Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Hyunglae Lee worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). Previously, he also worked at Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) and LG Electronics. His research interests focus on physical human-robot interaction, neuromuscular control of human movement, and robot-aided neurorehabilitation. He was a recipient of a Samsung Scholarship.

Hamid Marvi

Hamid Marvi

Hamid Marvi
Assistant Professor
Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology

Hamid Marvi was a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University (2014-2015) and at Georgia Institute of Technology (2013-2014). His work has been published in several scientific journals such as Science and has received attention from popular media such as New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and BBC. His research aims to study fundamental physics behind interactions of biological systems with their surrounding solid, granular, and fluidic environments. Utilizing biological insights derived from these studies, he would like to develop bio-inspired robotic systems and programmable interfacial structures for search and rescue, exploratory, and medical applications.

Brent Nanneaga

Brent Nannenga

Brent Nannenga
Assistant Professor
Ph.D., University of Washington

Brent Nannenga’s research focuses on protein engineering and studying the structure-function relationships of these designed proteins. Additionally, he is interested in developing and improving new techniques for structural biology, specifically cryo-electron microscopy.
