Prof. Stein joined the Physics Department at Brown in the fall of 2006, following postdoctoral work at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. He obtained his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University in 2003, and his B.Sc. from McGill University in 1997. Prof. Stein's research has focused on the study of single biomolecules, and the use of nanofabricated structures to manipulate them.
