Geoffrey Beach is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. He received a B.S. in Physics from Caltech in 1997, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, San Diego in 2003 at the UCSD Center for Magnetic Recording Research. After his postdoctoral work at the University of Texas at Austin, Prof. Beach joined the MIT faculty and established the Laboratory for Nanomagnetism and Spin Dynamics, which pursues advanced spin-based concepts in data storage, logic, and biomedical applications. His work has been recognized with numerous awards including most recently a Deshpande Center Award for Technological Innovation, the MIT Junior Bose Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the MIT Class of 1958 Chaired Professorship.
