Patrick S. Doyle / Professor Executive Officer, Chemical Engineering MIT

Patrick Doyle is the Robert T. Haslam Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research focuses on fundamental and applied topics in soft matter. Much of our research is in the realms of micro/nanofluidic technologies, DNA biophysics, biosensing and rheology. A burgeoning interest is the use of microfludics to synthesize microparticles for both fundamental colloidal studies and applications, such as multiplexed sensing, biomimetic systems and anti-counterfeiting.  He obtained his B.S. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992, and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1997. After postdoctoral work with Jean-Louis Viovy at the Institute Curie in Paris, he joined the Chemical Engineering Department at MIT in 2000. Among his honors are the NSF-Career Award (2003), Lab on a Chip/ Corning Inc. Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize (2008), John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2009), and the RSC Soft Matter Lectureship (2012).
