Dr. Anthony Fowler

Research Scientist

Anthony Fowler graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) with Class I Honours and a Bachelor of Business with a major in Management in 2010 from the University of Newcastle, Australia. He was awarded a PhD in Electrical Engineering at the same university in 2014, which was supported by a Postgraduate Studentship offered by CSIRO Energy Technology. His is currently a Research Scientist within the Laboratory for Dynamics and Control of Nanosystems at The University of Texas at Dallas, with his research being focused on developing innovative MEMS-based systems for energy scavenging, nanopositioning, and scanning probe microscopy applications.
