Chad Curtis, Ph.D.

I received by bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at the University of Utah. Aiming to teach professionally, I went to graduate school at the University of Washington to get my PhD, also in chemical engineering. I ended up working on a very data-intensive project, which opened a lot of doors in the growing field of data science. I am very excited to join the up-and-coming data science program as an assistant professor here at Nevada State.

My research interests lie at the intersection of medicine, nanotechnology, and data science. I use machine learning to model connections between nanoparticle movement and aspects of the tissue microenvironment to help improve drug delivery outcomes. Despite the niche application, I am enthusiastic about using data science and programming tools across disciplines, whether it be medicine, the environment, or football stats.

Outside of class you can usually find me reading a history book of some sort, playing around with our awesome 3D printer setup on campus, or spending time with my kids in the beautiful outdoors here in Nevada.
