Biography

Dr. Orbaek White is a Senior Lecturer at Swansea University (UK) in the College of Engineering. His work involves the synthesis of carbon nanomaterials for use as power distribution materials. He completed his PhD at Rice University on the catalytic growth of single walled carbon nanotubes under the guidance of Prof. Andrew Barron. He spent several years working with the Richard E. Smalley Institute conducting research on carbon nanotechnology, with the objective to create the Armchair Quantum Wire. He carried out research and managed several projects related to the application, separation, characterisation, wet chemistry, and synthesis of single walled CNTs, and multi walled CNTs. He also has a focus on education and has created class materials at Rice University for the teaching of undergraduate chemistry students by using plasmonic silver nanoparticles. He then took a post-doc position at MIT in the Department of Mechanical Engineering with Professor A. John Hart, where he developed methods to produce ultra long SWNTs (UL-SWNTs) of inch length scale. At MIT he taught Introduction to Mechanics Course 8.012 for one semester in the Department of Physics. He has also co-authored the textbook Inorganic Chemistry for Dummies that is widely distributed by international publishing house Wiley & Sons. He was awarded the Younger Chemist of the Year award (2013) from the American Chemical Society, greater Houston section. Since 2010, Dr. Orbaek White has published 15 journal publications, and 18 conference abstracts/papers/posters, has 2 patents issued in the US related to nanotechnology applications, wrote a textbook on inorganic chemistry, and has presented invited seminar talks both in the U.S. and Ireland. Degrees: Ph.D. Chemistry, Rice University, 2013. M.A. Chemistry, Rice University, 2010, B.Sc. Experimental Physics, National University of Ireland Galway, 2003.
