Dr. JEFFREY W. GILMAN received his B.A. in chemistry from Ithaca College, and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of California, Irvine from Kenneth Shea. After a postdoc with Raj K. Razdan at SISA, he worked at the Air Force Research Laboratory on polyurethanes and POSS. He joined NIST in 1994 as a research polymer chemist. He is currently the leader of the Composites Project at NIST. His recent work focuses on interface imaging using fluorescence methods and cellulose nanofiber composites. He has over 60 peer-reviewed publications, several patents and has authored several book chapters. Dr. Gilman has successfully formed four NIST-Industry research consortia, and has had a number of externally funded research programs during the 20 years at NIST. In 1999 he was awarded the Department of Commerce Bronze Medal, and in 2009 the Jacob Rabinow Award.
