About the Author(s)

Troy Shinbrot, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Rutgers University

Troy Shinbrot received his undergraduate degree from Reed College, and his PhD from the University of Maryland. His dissertation dealt with the control of chaos. After leaving Maryland, he joined the faculty at Rutgers University, where he has studied mixing, demixing, soft matter physics, as well as a smattering of topics in neuroscience, pharmaceutical engineering, and astrophysics. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and the founding editor of Physical Review Applied.
