Professional Summary

Dr. Shaw’s research has involved combinations of conventional and novel processing techniques with structure modification via manipulation of chemical, thermodynamic and transport variables. Examples employing this approach include microcellular foam via spinodal decomposition of polymer‐solvent mixture, permeability and conductivity modification via electric‐field modification, and unique polymeric actuators using field‐controlled particle alignment. Dr. Shaw also has interests in the area of instrument design and modification for executing difficult mechanical and rheological tests on unusual materials or shapes.
