Bio

Drawing from an interdisciplinary academic background, Dr. Schroeder is broadly interested in polymer chemistry and physics, materials science, and biomimicry. His group’s founding research thrusts will include:

  1. Control of crystal growth from solution using macromolecular additives
  2. Mineralization of biopolymers for sustainable material development
  3. Gel-based ionic circuitry
