Archer Receives NSF Special Creativity Award

Monday, November 18, 2013

Lynden A. Archer, William C. Hooey Director and Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is the recipient of the 2013 National Science Foundation (NSF) Special Creativity Award from the Division of Materials Research (DMR).

The NSF Special Creativity award is designed to recognize its most creative investigators who are attacking research problems at the forefront of their fields. Recipients of the award receive an automatic two-year extension on their NSF grant in which the award-winning research was performed and freedom to work on research topics of their choosing during the period of the extension.

Archer’s award recognizes his path-defining research on structure, dynamics, and ion transport in a class of self-suspended, nanoparticle-polymer composite fluids termed Nanoscale Organic Hybrid Materials (NOHMs). Archer will use his Special Creativity award to study thermodynamic & physical properties of NOHMs/NOHMs blends and to investigate the origins of hyperdiffusive transport of nanoparticles in polymers.
