Shaurya Prakash's Biography

Shaurya Prakash, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University

Shaurya Prakash graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and with a BSME from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville in 2001. He has been on the faculty at The Ohio State University since fall 2009 where he directs the Microsystems and Nanosystems Laboratory. His research focuses on developing Microsystems and Nanosystems for applications in healthcare and medical instrumentation, water purification, and renewable and alternate energy. His group addresses fundamental scientific questions while developing new technologies for problems important to modern societal needs. The research work is multi-disciplinary often bridging several fields including mechanical engineering, surface chemistry, and materials science. Prof. Prakash has published several papers including a recently authored book titled, “Nanofluidics and Microfluidics: Systems and Applications”, (Elsevier) and is on the editorial board for the Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology (Springer). His research has received significant financial support from both industry and various government agencies.

A nanofluidic device with an embedded and fluidically isolated gate electrode, analogous to solid state semiconductor field effect transistors was developed for exquisite ionic transport control. Specifically, the gated electric field allows for tunable control of both the magnitude and direction of the net ionic current through the nanochannels as a function of electrolyte concentration and gate electrode location permitting device operation as a multi-state switch. Additionally, we show that ion transport is cation dependent for negatively charged walls demonstrating that engineered surface charge can potentially lead to significant advances in separations and nanoscale selective ion transport.
