I lead the Polymer Processing Group, which develops measurement methods, data, standards, and science for the processing and manufacturing of materials into functional forms that include thin films, nanostructures, and shaped bulk solids. We provide expertise in in situ processing measurements, structure and order evolution, nanofabrication, polymer phase behavior, and polymer dynamics needed to improve the performance of materials in application areas such as energy and electronics.
My work also includes a specialization in soft X-ray spectroscopy and scattering, which are powerful synchrotron-based tools that measures the composition and molecular orientation of organic systems.
