Lynden A. Archer
Lynden Archer joined the Cornell faculty in 2000. He was appointed director of the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in 2010. Since 2008 he has served as co-director of the KAUST-Cornell Center for Energy and Sustainability.
His research focuses on transport properties of
polymers and organic-inorganic hybrid materials. Archer is also interested in applications of hybrid materials for energy storage and carbon capture technologies. During the period 1993-94 he was a postdoctoral member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and has been
recognized with several awards, including the AICHE MAC Centennial Engineer Award, James & Mary Tien Excellence in Teaching Award, the National Science Foundation Early Career Award, and DuPont and 3M Young Professor Awards. He earned a B.S. in chemical engineering (polymer science) from the University of Southern California in 1989 and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Stanford University in 1993.
Research in the Archer group focuses on the synthesis, science, and technological applications of polymers, complex fluids, and nanoscale organic-inorganic hybrid materials (NOHMs) for electrochemical energy storage.
