Aaron Mazzeo is the Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate Director and associate professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Prior to joining the faculty at Rutgers, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and he completed his undergraduate (S.B.) and graduate degrees (S.M. and Ph.D.) at MIT in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The Mazzeo Research Group, or Rutgers Lab for Machines, Manufacturing, and Mechatronics, focuses on flexible and disposable electronics for mechanical and biological sensing, soft-hard robotics, cold plasma-based sanitization and treatments, and in-space manufacturing. Funding has come through Rutgers University, the NSF, NASA, the USDA, the DoD, and DARPA. Aaron has received an NSF CAREER Award, NASA MSFC Summer Faculty Fellowships, an A. Walter Tyson Assistant Professorship Award through the School of Engineering, a Rutgers Engineering Governing Council's Professor-of-the-Year Award, and a Rutgers Presidential Fellowship for Teaching Excellence. He and his family have also appreciated living and participating as members of the Rutgers Honors College community.
