Oct 02, 2023   |   by Theresa D'Orsi   |   Dartmouth Engineer

Dartmouth Engineering welcomed three new faculty during the summer and fall terms.

(l to r) Professors Alexander Boys, Tucker Burgin, and Wei Ouyang

Alexander Boys

Assistant Professor Alexander Boys is a materials scientist and biomedical engineer whose work lies at the intersection of tissue engineering and bioelectronics. His research focuses on developing bioelectronic implants that interact with the body. Boys earned his MS and PhD from Cornell University and was a Human Frontier Science Program fellow and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge (U.K.) working on bioelectronic implants for interfacing with the nervous system.

Tucker Burgin

Biomedical engineer Tucker Burgin’s research focuses on the use of molecular simulations and machine learning to computationally engineering enzymes and other proteins. Prior to joining Dartmouth as assistant professor, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington. He earned his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan, where he developed ATESA, a software package to automate and improve unbiased discovery of rare event mechanisms with transition path sampling.

Wei Ouyang

Assistant Professor Wei Ouyang develops bio-integrated microsystems for neuroscience and healthcare innovation, with a focus on microelectromechanical systems, implants, and wearable devices. Prior to joining Dartmouth, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Querrey Simpson Institute for Bioelectronics at Northwestern University. He earned his BS in microelectronics from Peking University (China) and SM in electrical engineering and computer science and PhD in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
