Faculty: Ma, Anson W. K.
Department: Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Ma’s research group focuses on understanding the flow behavior, or rheology, of complex fluids (e.g. suspensions, foams, and emulsions) thereby developing novel, scalable techniques for processing these fluids into multifunctional, high performance articles (e.g. films, fibers, and polymer composites). Current projects include how to exploit the size and shape of particles to: (1) create […]

Faculty: Willis, Brian
Department: Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Willis research is focused on engineering when nanometers count. Future technologies that utilize nanotechnology principles will require manufacturing precision that isn’t yet achievable. Moreover, nanostructures have proportionately more surface area than larger structures, which places significantly greater importance on control of interfaces and free surfaces. We are working on solar-plasmonic devices for solar energy […]
