ACS COLLOID AND SURFACE SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM

New York, NY

The 91st annual ACS Colloids conference was held at The City College of New York. I presented my work on the confined dynamics of polymer grafted to nanoparticles and the effect of that confinement on transport properties (Presentation #497). My colleague, Renjie Chen, also presented her work on simulations of nanoparticle dynamics in semidilute polymer solutions (Presentation #98).

March 13 - 17, 2017

AMERICAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY MARCH MEETING

NEW ORLEANS, LA

At the March Meeting in New Orleans, I gave two oral presentations on recent neutron and x-ray scattering experiments. The first presentation focused on our measurements of the dynamics of polymer grafted to nanoparticle surfaces (H9.00005, Presentation). The second presentation detailed measurements on the dynamics of charged nanoparticles through polymer solutions (R17.00004, Presentation)

SOCIETY OF RHEOLOGY ANNUAL MEETING

TAMPA, FL

In Tampa, FL, I gave an oral and poster presentation focusing on understanding the nanoscale dynamics of composite materials and how they relate to the bulk mechanical properties measured by conventional rheometers. The oral presentation focused on the dynamics of polymer-grafted nanoparticles. The poster detailed the effect of interparticle interactions on the subdiffusive dynamics of nanoparticles in polymer solutions, for which I won the poster award for graduate student research (Poster, Article on Award).

University of Pennsylvania Polymer Symposium

Philadelphia, PA

I presented an invited student talk at the 4th Annual Penn Polymer Symposium detailing some recent work on the dynamics of polymer-grafted nanoparticles in polymer solutions. This work was conducted near the end of my Ph.D. research. The presentation continued into some exciting preliminary results on the  

October 28 - November 2, 2018

American Institute of Chemical Engineers Fall Meeting

Pittsburgh, PA

I presented two talks at the AIChE Fall Meeting. The first talk was presented in the Excellence in Graduate Polymer Research session and focused on the surprising transport dynamics of polymer-grafted nanoparticles in polymer solutions. The second talk discussed using polymer solutions to induce the assembly of gold nanorods cheaply, easily, and in large quantities.
