>>   RESEARCH PROJECTS

Many of our research projects are tied closely to issues in technology: how to understand the strength of the joint when two pieces of polymer are welded together, how to maintain the performance of paints and other coatings when they are made "environmentally friendly", how to model the formation of sludge in motor oil, how to understand the connection between structure and properties in polymer blends.

In many of these projects, we work closely with scientists in industry and at other universities around the world. In this way we are able to study each problem with a wide variety of tools and techniques.

Here is a list of the projects that our group is currently pursuing:
