Primary Academic Program: Chemistry
Biography:Miles Arthur White comes to Bard from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he developed artificial interphases based on organic ionic plastic crystals to facilitate commercially practical multivalent batteries. His areas of research interest include materials chemistry, solid-state chemistry, nanomaterials, and thermoelectrics. At Iowa State University, where he received his PhD, he was the recipient of the 2018 Research Excellence Award and the 2016 Teaching Excellence Award. He was also a Reaxys PhD Prize finalist for excellence and innovation in synthetic chemistry—one of 45 graduate students and post-docs selected from more than 400 participating institutions—and presented his research at a symposium in Shanghai. He is the coauthor of publications including, among others, “Expanding the I-II-V Phase Space: Soft Synthesis of Polytypic Ternary and Binary Zinc Antimonides,” in Chemistry of Materials; and “Solution-Grown Sodium Bismuth Dichalcogenides: Toward Earth-Abundant, Biocompatible Semiconductors” and “Polytypism and Unique Site Preference in LiZnSb: A Superior Thermoelectric Reveals Its True Colors,” in Journal of the American Chemical Society.
BS, University of Wisconsin–Madison; PhD, Iowa State University. At Bard since 2019.
