Biography

Dr. Mubarak Mujawar is currently associated with BioMEMS-Microsystems Laboratory, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Florida International University. His research is focused on investigating low temperature plasmas for their applications in nanofabrication and biotechnology. He is also involved in undergraduate STEM education research and have interest in creating active and collaborative learning environments for large classrooms. He received his PhD in Plasma Physics from Dublin City University, Ireland. Prior to joining FIU, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Laser and Plasma applications group, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

Current Research

Cold atmospheric plasma: Advent of plastic electronics demands robust and versatile techniques for polymer surface treatment at lower temperatures. The properties of atmospheric plasma jets, such as low temperature operation and high density active species generation at ambient pressure, are being exploited to tailor surface activation and modification processes.

Metal Insulator Metal devices: Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) devices have potential applications in the areas ranging from solar energy harvesting to magnetic RAM for data storage. The current research is aimed at understanding the effect of process conditions and process parameters on MIM device characteristics.

Active and collaborative learning: In large enrolment, introductory STEM classrooms, students are often passive receptors of instructors' knowledge. Students also have fewer opportunities to interact with peers and instructors. To address these issues active and collaborative learning methods are being explored.
