Nano.Stasis Cosmic Garden [SMALL IS THE NEW BIG]

Garden Street: Lower Level

Nano.Stasis is an art form that explores the exquisite side of a radical new technology – one that is changing lives. Sparked by Harvard’s Tarr Family Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics, Kit Parker, and his invention of a cotton candy-inspired rotary jet spinning technology, nanofibers form the basis of this novel medium. Parker’s groundbreaking […]


Nina Sinatra is a doctoral candidate in Materials Science & Engineering at Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.  Her research focuses on the intersection between mechanical and chemical properties of polymer nanofibers. Nina is designing novel methods to fabricate strong nanofabrics by understanding how nanoscale features can be used to tune properties at the macroscale. Prior to joining the Disease Biophysics Group at SEAS, she completed a fellowship at the Max Planck Institute of Polymer Research, and internships at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the MIT Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies. Nina holds a B.S. and an M.S. in Materials Science & Engineering from MIT and Columbia University, respectively. She has been awarded research fellowships by Harvard and Columbia, and is a member of the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society.
