Inaugural lecture by Norman Wagner Jan. 31

Norman Wagner, Alvin B. and Julia O. Stiles Professor of Chemical Engineering
8:57 a.m., Jan. 4, 2006--Norman Wagner, Alvin B. and Julia O. Stiles Professor of Chemical Engineering, will deliver his inaugural lecture as a named professor beginning at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 31, in 131 Sharp Lab.

The lecture, “Colloids and Polymers: Nanostructured Materials and Some Applications in Nanotechnology,” will highlight Wagner’s research in the field. He works in the areas of rheology, complex fluids, nanotechnology and particle technology and leads a research effort in modeling nanostructured materials by molecular modeling.

Wagner, who earned his doctoral degree at Princeton University, was a National Science Foundation/NATO postdoctoral fellow in Germany and a director’s postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Lab before joining the UD faculty in 1991. In 2002, he received the Siple Award from the U.S. Army for his development of shear thickening fluids, liquids that harden instantly on impact and have potential uses in such materials as military body armor.

The free lecture is open to the public and will be followed by a reception in the lobby of Du Pont Hall. To r.s.v.p., call (302) 831-2401 or e-mail [ddalex@udel.edu].
