Faculty Spotlight
Chinedum Osuji
Associate Professor of Chemical & Environmental Engineering

Chinedum Osuji's interests are centered on the physics and physical chemistry of soft matter - studying and elucidating self-assembly and basic structure-property relationships of colloids, liquid crystals, polymers and biological materials. Research in the Osuji lab is focused on structure and dynamics of soft materials, such as the relationship between the microstructure of polymer melts, surfactant phases, liquid crystals and colloidal gels and their dynamics.
