Dartmouth brings specific, complementary expertise in power conversion circuits and systems, integrated circuits, passive components, and fabrication under the scientific leadership of:
Professor Sullivan received his BS in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and his PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California at Berkeley. Before joining the engineering faculty at Dartmouth, he worked as a power electronics design engineer for Lutron Electronics Company. He has published over 180 technical papers in magnetics, power electronics, electric machine modeling and control, and energy efficiency. He holds 42 patents, was the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award and an IEEE PELS Modeling and Control Technical Achievement Award, and is an IEEE Fellow.
Research Areas: Electromagnetic modeling and design of passive power electronics components;
micro-fabricated magnetic components; nanocomposite magnetic materials
Professor Stauth received his MS and PhD degrees from UC Berkeley where he studied integrated circuits and high-frequency power electronics. He has worked or consulted for companies in automotive, consumer, and industrial areas and co-founded two companies in the renewable energy space. Stauth joined the engineering faculty at Dartmouth in 2011, is a recipient of the NSF Career Award and the Thayer School Excellence in Teaching Award, and is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and IEEE Solid State Circuit Letters.
Research Areas: High-frequency and chip-scale power electronics; sensor interfaces and energy
scavenging; integrated circuit design
Professor Levey received his BA degree from Carleton College and his PhD degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both in physics. He was at AT&T Bell Labs until 1986 and then joined the faculty of Dartmouth, first in the Physics Department, then in engineering. His research has included MEMS devices, stress engineered microrobots, binary optics, and micro-inductors. He serves as Director of the Thayer School Microengineering Laboratory.
Research Areas: Microfabrication technology; micro-optical systems and binary optics;
micromechanical and electromechanical systems (MEMS)
Professor Wegst studied physics and materials science at the University of Göttingen, Germany and
the University of Cambridge, UK and received her PhD for the analysis of structure-property
correlations in natural materials. Before joining the engineering faculty at Dartmouth, she worked at
the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France, the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research,
Stuttgart, Germany, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Drexel University as the Anne
Stevens Assistant Professor focusing on materials selection, development of the CES Eco-Selector,
and custom-design and new manufacturing techniques of materials for biomedical and energy
applications—areas in which she also holds patents. She is also the recipient of the 2007
Werner-Köster-Award of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde.
Research Areas: Multifunctional hybrid materials; biomimetics; freeze casting; materials substitution;
Professor Scheideler received BS degrees in Electrical Engineering andBiomedical Engineering from Duke University and a PhD degree in ElectricalEngineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley, where he studiedsemiconductor devices and thin film electronics. Before joining the engineeringfaculty at Dartmouth in 2019, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar at StanfordUniversity in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Prof. Scheideler’s research groupdevelops multifunctional materials and nanomanufacturing methods forhigh-performance flexible and hybrid electronics, including low-power sensorsand energy harvesting for wireless devices.
