Arun Ramchandran named CRC in Engineered Soft Materials and Interfaces

Professor Arun Ramchandran is the new Canada Research Chair in Engineered Soft Materials and Interfaces (Tier 2).

Complex fluids have properties that are intermediate between traditional liquids, gases and solids. Examples include mayonnaise, blood, fabric softeners and even drilling muds used in mining. Professor Ramchandran and his team use sophisticated measurements and mathematical models to understand the fundamental processes that govern the properties of complex fluids. Their insights could lead to better treatments for human diseases, more efficient mining operations and higher quality manufacturing, among many other applications.
