Frank Fisher



  • Higher Ed: Engineering 


Dr. Frank Fisher is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, NJ) and is co-Director of the Stevens Nanotechnology Graduate Program. Dr. Fisher earned BS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh in 1995, and Masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Learning Sciences (School of Education and Social Policy) from Northwestern University. 


His technical research interests include characterization of nanoreinforced polymer systems, multiscale modeling of nanocomposites and materials, NEMS/MEMS sensors and devices, and vibration energy harvesting/scavenging. He is also interested in the application of learning science to practical applications of engineering education at K-16 level.
