About Joseph DeSimone

Dr. Joseph DeSimone is the CEO and co-founder of Carbon, a company revolutionizing the 3D printing industry. His team developed a process called continuous loop interface production or CLIP which is a super fast 3D printing technique using light and oxygen that allows the printed objects to emerge from a pool of resin - just like the T-1000 robot in Terminator 2. Before co-founding Carbon with one of his students, he co-founded several other companies, taught at UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University, and mentored over 30 students from underrepresented demographics through their doctoral studies. DeSimone completed his undergraduate studies at Ursinus College and his doctorate at Virginia Tech - both in chemistry. To learn more about Dr. DeSimone, read this, thisthis, or this!

About the AEW Program

An Evening with Joseph DeSimone is the third AEW in a series of events connecting students with NMS and NMTI Laureates. Every Laureate has a unique story, and it is the mission of the NSTMF to share these stories far and wide. It is more important than ever to celebrate the heroes of American scientific excellence who are driving our world forward. By sharing the Laureates’ stories and celebrating their diverse backgrounds, the AEW program gives anyone the opportunity to learn from and interact with Laureates and maybe, just, maybe, be inspired to begin their own career in STEM.
