Engineering technologically useful, high performance materials requires nanoscale and/or molecular control of their underlying microstructure. Our research is focused on developing a fundamental understanding of the molecular and nanoscale structure and dynamics of complex materials, especially during flow and processing, which falls under the rubrics of nonequilibrium thermodynamics and rheology. Our goals include directing molecular and nanoscale self-assembly as a route to engineering novel materials. We are also pioneering new experimental methods for probing nanoscale material structure in conjunction with the National Center for Neutron Research (NIST). This research has broad application, is supported by both international industrial concerns as well as by the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards and Technology, and includes collaborations around the globe."
