Michael J. Detisch is a Post-Doctoral Scholar in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Kentucky. He has focused on research involving nanostructured materials synthesis and characterization and has applied these skills to a number of fields. Mike received his BS degree in Physics & Astronomy from the University of Kentucky in 2012. He later returned to UK to pursue graduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering where he graduated with his PhD in 2020.
During his doctoral work, Mike worked as part of two other multi-disciplinary research efforts, the biomimetic membrane research pillar of the EPSCoR program as well as the NIEHS Superfund Research Program center at UK focused on environmental and human health impacts of specific pollutants. This research focused on incorporating nanomaterials into composite membrane systems for environmental applications. Since that time Mike has worked as a Post-Doc in Dr. John Balk’s group as well as UK’s Electron Microscopy Center.
