Brian Seguin obtained a B.S. in Engineering Mechanics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2005 and a Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010. Since then he has spent time at McGill University and the University of Dundee.
Brian is interested in using techniques from geometry and analysis to study problems in material science and biology. For example, he has worked on projects involving plant cell biomechanics, lipid bilayers, liquid crystal theory, and soap films.
