Scott Oppenheimer

Personal Portrait

I am originally from Cleveland, but grew up in Rochester, NY. I went to school at Binghamton University and graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in applied physics and a second B.S. in computer science. Currently I am pursuing a degree in material science at Northwestern.

In the lab I am working on the kinetics and properties of porous titanium. This is part of a multi-professor project into new bone implant materials. Titanium foams are by their nature strong, light, and bio-compatible, which makes them excellent for bone replacement. The porosity also allows for bone ingrowth and therefore a more secure bone implant connection.
