Our faculty researchers combine years of industry experience with Undergraduate research opportunities Meet some of our faculty and learn more about their areas of expertise and current projects below.
Dr. Henthorn’s research involves the characterization of transitional bubble and liquid profiles during bubble breakup periods, and may also include investigation into the effect of fluid rheology on pressure drop profiles in these systems.
Dr. Nolte’s research focuses on the processing of ultrathin polymer coatings by alternating adsorption of positively and negatively charged polymers (polyelectrolytes) and how various methods used to adsorb the polyelectrolytes affect the ability of the resulting PEM to swell in humid air.
Dr. McClellan’s oversees student researchers seeking to create and characterize drug-loaded nanoparticles. Their work includes particle size analysis, quantification of drug loading, and complete release studies.
