Talid R. Sinno
Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Talid Sinno received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering and B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania. He received a Ph.D. (1998) in Chemical Engineering from M.I.T, where he subsequently spent another year as a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer. He has been a member of the standing faculty of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania since 1999 and is currently Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. He also holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at Penn and is a member of the Graduate Groups in Materials Science and Engineering as well as Physics and Astronomy. Talid Sinno currently serves as the Founding Director of the master’s degree program in Scientific Computing (SCMP) at Penn, which provides students with coursework and research training at the nexus of modern scientific computing, artificial intelligence, and data science.
Dr. Sinno’s research in computational materials science is focused on multiscale modeling and simulation of nucleation, aggregation, and crystallization processes in a wide range of material systems. He has published widely in diverse areas, including semiconductor microstructure evolution during crystal growth, self-assembly of colloidal crystals, and platelet cell aggregation (clotting) in blood flow. His group develops and applies numerous computational techniques across length and time scales to study these problems, including molecular dynamics, various flavors of Monte Carlo, and continuum scale modeling.
