Joe Patterson, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at University of California, Irvine. He is a materials chemist and electron microscopy expert focusing on the liquid phase and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy, and molecular and colloidal self-assembly. Joe was born in Nottingham, England. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of York, UK, and conducted his master’s research project with Cytec Engineered Materials at the Wilton Centre. He completed his Ph.D. in radical polymer chemistry and self-assembly at the University of Warwick, UK, in 2013, working under the supervision of Professor Rachel O’Reilly. He has been awarded several prizes including the Domino/MacroGroupUK Young Polymer Scientist of the Year in 2011, the 2013 Jon Weaver Ph.D. prize, and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual fellowship in 2017.
Joe’s current research focuses on developing a holistic understanding of the mechanisms that govern molecular and colloidal self-assembly. His group’s goal is the development of new materials through a deep understanding of their structure and dynamics.
