Congratulations to Professor Charles Schroeder, who has been selected to receive the 2019 Journal of Rheology Publication Award from the Society of Rheology.
The award recognizes the best paper published in the Journal of Rheology during the preceding two years. Schroeder will be recognized at the annual meeting of the Society of Rheology in October. Previous winners of this award include University of Illinois Elio Tarika Chair Emeritus Charles “Chip” Zukoski; Ronald G. Larson, the George Granger Brown Professor at the University of Michigan; and John F. Brady, Chevron Professor of Engineering at the California Institute of Technology; and other leaders in the field.
Schroeder is the Ray and Beverly Mentzer Faculty Scholar in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. His research group studies the dynamics of polymers, proteins, and soft materials using single molecule techniques. A major goal of his research is to understand how microscopic phenomena give rise to the emergent, macroscopic properties of soft materials.
