Bethanie Stadler works on the integration of magnetic nanowires for magnetoelectronics (including hard drive heads), microfluidic flow sensors and actuators, acoustic/vibration sensor applications, and cellular biomarkers. In photonics, Stadler works on the integration of magnets, magneto-optical garnets waveguides, and nanostructures for magnetophotonic crystals with semiconductor platforms for isolator and sensor applications. Stadler received her PhD from MIT in 1994 and her B.S. from Case Western Reserve University in 1990. She held a National Research Council postodoctoral fellowship at the Air Force Rome Laboratory before joining Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Her research there has been awarded the NSF CAREER award and a McKnight Presidential Fellowship. Stadler has served as Director and Secretary of the international Materials Research Society.
