Fiona Case

Case Scientific
NSTI Advanced Materials Coordinator

Fiona Case, is coordinator of advanced materials programs at the NSTI, she has more than 15 years experience in the industrial applications of polymer and surfactant science. Her introduction to industrial polymer science was in the late 80’s at Courtaulds Research in the UK where she worked as part of the team developing Tencel - a new environmentally friendly solvent spun cellulose fiber. She also investigated the effects of polyacrylonitrile microstructure on carbon fiber performance using early molecular and quantum mechanics computer modeling techniques. Courtaulds’ involvement as a founder member of the Biosym/Molecular Simulations Inc. (MSI) Polymer Consortium, one of the earliest materials simulation efforts, meant frequent trips to sunny San Diego, CA. In 1991 she moved to California to join Biosym. Fiona spent nine years at Biosym/MSI (now Accelrys). She carried out contract research for some of the top US and European companies. As manager of the MSI training group she prepared and presented more than 30 workshops worldwide on polymer science and molecular modeling. She also worked in marketing and technical sales support. In 1999 she was hired into a central research group at Colgate Palmolive. This presented challenges including materials structure and property prediction for toothpaste, detergent, hard surface care and personal care products, and packaging and fragrance technology. She also continued to be active in professional education as a lecturer for American Chemical Society (ACS) Short Courses on polymer science and molecular modeling. In her spare time she organized a symposium on Mesoscale Phenomena in Fluid Systems, which was held during the ACS National Meeting in Boston, 2002. She is the coeditor a book based on this symposium (ACS Symposium Series #861). In 2003 Fiona left Colgate Palmolive to move to beautiful Vermont with her husband, Martin Case, and to found Case Scientific offering consultancy and contract research in soft nanotechnolgy, computational chemistry, polymer and surfactant science. She has also embarked on a "second career" in scientific journalism. Fiona is a Chartered Chemist and a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the ACS, the American Oil Chemists Society, and the National Association of Science Writers.
