Research and Scholarship

Professional Interests:

  • Statics and kinetics of phase separation in multi-component polymer blends using
    • light scattering
    • optical and atomic force microscopy
    • neutron scattering
    • Monte Carlo techniques
  • Polymer/structure relationships studied via spin-lattice relaxation measurements of local segmental dynamics in polymers
  • Promoting the teaching and learning of research in an undergraduate setting via
    • incorporation of research activities in traditional courses
    • development of Internet resources for undergraduate research
    • an active and externally funded local undergraduate research program
  • Incorporation of information technology in lecture and laboratory settings
