Dr. Edward Furlani held joint appointments as a Professor in the Departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the University at Buffalo. His research involved the development of computational methods and models to create next-generation materials and devices with features and functionality designed at the nano to micro-scale. His latest projects spanned applications of microfluidics, additive manufacturing, biosensing, energy storage, nanophotonics and bio-applications of magnetic particles.
Dr. Furlani transitioned to UB from the Eastman Kodak Research Labs where he performed and directed computational modeling for the development of numerous commercial technologies. He is among Kodak’s most prolific inventors with a record of scientific innovation that spans over 25 years and 152 U.S. patents including notable contributions to the fields of applied magnetics, microsystems technology, optoelectronics and inkjet systems. Dr. Furlani was elevated to a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors in recognition of this work.
Dr. Furlani served as an advisory board member for various companies and as symposium organizer and steering committee member for international conferences. He also served on the editorial board and as reviewer for numerous journals, as well as on national and international scientific review panels. Dr. Furlani’s cumulative scientific contributions include over 100 peer-reviewed publications, 90 journal publications, a sole-authored textbook on applied magnetics and numerous book chapters and invited conference presentations.
