Faculty research disciplines range from adhesives analysis to ultrafast spectroscopy. The interdisciplinary nature of our faculty's work makes organizing their research by traditional categories inappropriate. For this reason, we present a rough overview of research done in our program. The following is by no means encompassing or exhaustive. For more information browse our faculty page or contact us.
On the rare occasion a student may choose to study under a faculty member unaffiliated with of our program. The student is then required to have a Macro coadviser. This helps the student properly progresses through our polymer science program while ensuring full accesses to the many resources of the University of Michigan.
