Hadley D. Sikes
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
Hadley Sikes Hadley Sikes joined the MIT faculty in the fall of 2009.  She completed undergraduate studies in chemistry at Tulane University and graduate studies in physical chemistry at Stanford University.  This degree work provided an exceptional foundation in fundamental scientific research.  A desire to explore engineering and applied research led to two postdoctoral positions: one in Christopher Bowman’s research group at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and one in Frances Arnold’s research group at Caltech.

Research in the Sikes lab combines the disparate yet complementary expertises gleaned from time spent in world-class physical chemistry, polymer engineering, and protein engineering labs.
