Welcome New Faculty - Carlos Baiz and Livia Eberlin

The Department of Chemistry is pleased to welcome our newest faculty members  - Drs.  Carlos Baiz and Livia Eberlin.


Carlos Baiz received his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2011 after receiving his bachelor's degree in chemistry from Michigan Technological University in 2005. He conducted postdoctoral research as an NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein Fellow in the group of Andrei Tokmakoff, first at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and later at the University of Chicago. His work focused on mapping protein-folding mechanisms using multidimensional infrared spectroscopy. Currently, Baiz's research interests straddle the interface between biophysics and physical chemistry, with a focus on understanding the molecular mechanisms of spontaneous phase separation in biological membranes and probing the mechanisms of membrane-assisted protein folding. His group also develops new optical techniques by combining ultrafast spectroscopy with near-field microscopy to probe the molecular dynamics of biological interfaces.



Livia Eberlin received her bachelor's degree in chemistry from the State University of Campinas, Brazil, in 2007, and her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from Purdue University in 2012. In recognition of her doctoral thesis research in mass spectrometry, she received the Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education in Chemistry from the American Chemical Society. Eberlin then moved to Stanford University for postdoctoral research in the Department of Chemistry as a L'Oréal for Women in Science Fellow. Eberlin's research focuses on applying novel mass spectrometry imaging technology to health related research. In particular, she is interested in using ambient mass spectrometry in creative ways to address critical problems in cancer research. Eberlin is passionate about interdisciplinary research and enjoys working with biologists, oncologists, surgeons, pathologists and statisticians to develop powerful chemical approaches that can be used in real life scenarios, such as in clinical practice.
