Chinedum Osuji, Eduardo D. Glandt Presidential Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Penn, has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).
His fellowship nomination was for insightful determination of the structure and functional properties of soft materials and especially the self-assembly and processing of polymers by the novel application of external fields such as chemical surface forces, magnetic fields and periodic pressure gradients.
The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in knowledge through original research and publication or made significant and innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society. Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the then current membership of the Society are recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in The American Physical Society.
