Scientist Sharon Glotzer will deliver the 2013 Danckwerts Lecture in April at the European Federation of Chemical Engineering’s 9th European Congress of Chemical Engineering in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Glotzer has written more than 160 publications and given more than 250 keynote and plenary talks around the world.
In her talk, “Assembly Engineering: Materials Design for the 21st Century,” she will discuss the core principles of assembly engineering and the application of these principles to the design and synthesis of next generation materials.
Glotzer’s research focuses on the self-assembly of nanoscale systems, looking at entropy, shape and form at a new level, opening doors to brand new creations.
“The fascinating science of self-assembly has matured sufficiently that bottom-up building block assembly is emerging as an important paradigm for the creation of new materials and structures,” Glotzer says.
