Jonathan Reeder

Biography: Jonathan Reeder is pursuing a doctoral degree in Material Science and Engineering under Dr. Walter Voit. He graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2012 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (2013). His research interests include flexible and stretchable electronics, organic transistors, shape memory polymers, and interfacing these materials for biomedical applications.

Jonathan was born in Plano, TX, and attended colleges in Chattanooga, TN and Mesquite, TX before transferring to UT Dallas. He has spent nine months studying abroad at the University of Tokyo, where he researched organic electronics and was awarded an NSF East Asia and Pacific Summer Institute Fellowship. He was named the ASME North Texas Section Undergraduate Student of the Year in 2011, and is the treasurer of the UT Dallas RISE program (Reaching and Inspiring Student Engineers). He also played four years of college baseball, was a Metro Athletic Conference All-Conference Relief Pitcher in 2008, and was named to the American Southwest Conference Academic All-Conference team in 2010.
