About Dr. Anasori: 

Dr. Babak Anasori received his PhD at Drexel University in 2014 in the Materials Science and Engineering Department, the birthplace of MXenes. Before joining Purdue School of Engineering & Technology, he was a Research Assistant Professor at the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute and Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University from 2016 to 2019. Babak is one of the inventors of a family of MXenes, ordered double-transition metal MXenes, as a result of his postdoctoral research, which was featured as one of the 2015's "biggest moments in chemistry" by the American Chemical Society.

Dr. Anasori's current research focuses on the synthesis and characterizations of novel MXenes and their metal and ceramic composites. He is one of the top five trending authors in the field of Materials Science and Nanotechnology in the world (Microsoft Academic) and among the Global Highly Cited Researchers 2019, 2020, and 2021 recognized by the Web of Science. Dr. Anasori has received several national and international awards and recognition for his research and artistic way of presenting science, including NSF/Science Visualization Challenge in 2011 and 2013, Diamond ranking in ACerS Graduate Excellence in Materials Science (GEMS) in 2012, Materials Research Society (MRS) Postdoctoral Award in 2016, Emerging Leaders of 2020 by the Journal of Physics, Condensed Matter, Drexel Forty-under-Forty in 2021, and the 2021 WIN Rising Star Award in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. [Honors and Awards]

Dr. Anasori has originated and organized multiple international student competitions, including NanoArtography and Science in Video (SciVid) in the MRS Fall Meetings. He is currently the chair of the Early Careers Subcommittee of the Materials Research Society (MRS).
