Josee Védrine-Pauléus received her Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Brown University in the research group of Professor Gregory P. Crawford on flexible display systems. She went on to work as a consultant at the World Bank Institute and joined the development team for establishing The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST). She returned to academia as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Professor Richard Register at Princeton University working with block copolymeric materials to fabricate nanostructures on semiconducting materials. In 2007 she held joint adjunct faculty positions at Brooklyn College in Physics, and Business Administration departments.
Dr. Vedrine is professor at the University of Puerto Rico, Humacao Campus in the Department of Physics and Electronics (Departamento de Física y Electrónica). Her research group works on device applications based on organic polymeric materials, flexible substrates, imaging of nanostructures and systems with atomic force microscopy analysis, and most recently wearable device research (CAWT). Vedrine is dedicated to her students and encourages undergraduates to pursue research experiences as a learning tool in the sciences and in life. See you at the Top!
