Technology Leader

Procter & Gamble Company

Pat Spicer is a Technology Leader in the Complex Fluids group at the Procter and Gamble Company.

At P&G he is responsible for scale-up of complex fluid processes when microstructural dynamics play a critical role in product quality. His research interests include nonequilibrium colloidal dynamics, crystallization, and microrheology. Pat is co-editor of the book Bicontinuous Liquid Crystals, a compilation of the latest research on the theory, characterization, and applications of self-assembled bicontinuous nanostructures, published by the CRC Press.

His research focuses on the characterization, modeling, and stability of structured fluids. Current problems include the formation and kinetic arrest of heterogeneous fluid microstructure, studied by novel optical microscopy techniques. We also investigate wetting effects on crystallization and their applications in material synthesis, separation, and rheology modification. Another phenomenon of interest is interfacial dynamics in wormlike micellar systems. Publications, preprints, and other miscellany are available at the web site, www.nonequilibrium.com.
