Mark A. Shannon is the Director of the U.S. National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center for Advanced Materials for the Purification of Water with Systems (WaterCAMPWS), which is a multiple university and government laboratory center for advancing the science and engineering of materials and systems for revolutionary improvements in water purification for human use. He is also the Director of the Micro-Nano-Mechanical Systems (MNMS) Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a 2000 sq. ft class 10 and 100 cleanroom laboratory devoted to research and education in the design and fabrication of micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS & NEMS), microscale fuel cells and gas sensors, micro-nanofluidic sensors for water and biological fluids. He was a Charter Member and Chair of the Instrument Systems Development Study Session for the National Institutes of Health. He is the James W. Bayne Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UIUC, and received his B.S. (1989) M.S. (1991) and Ph.D. (1993) degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. He is also a Co-Founder of Cbana Laboratories, Inc, a start up company dedicated to developing state-of-the-art microscale gas chromatographs and sensors, and is the Founder of the United States Strategic Water Initiative, which is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing water science and technologies for purifying water for human use.
