Dr. Paul J. Angiolillo earned his B.S. in Physics from Saint Joseph's University and then went on to obtain a M.S. and Ph.D. in molecular biophysics from the University of Pennsylvania. After a 4-year stint teaching in the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science at the University of Sciences in Philadelphia, Dr. Angiolillo joined Saint Joseph’s in 2000. Dr. Angiolillo's research program has evolved away from biophysics and is now concentrated in the area of experimental condensed matter and materials physics. Specifically, he is currently studying both charged ground and excited states in conjugated organic conducting and semi-conducting materials using electron spin resonance spectroscopy. These materials have potential uses in harvesting the Sun’s energy (photovoltaics), and as platforms for the new area of spintronics.
