Thomas Schroeder

Asst Professor


Textiles Complex 3306


Tom Schroeder joined the Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2022. 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. Aqueous ionic circuitry in gels and textiles
