Hall, Ryan

Ph.D. Advisor: Ronald Larson, Michael Solomon

PPG Fellow (2017)

In Dr. Larson's lab, I'm studying the relaxation dynamics of polymers, with varying architecture, through a combination of rheological experimentation and theoretical approaches. In Dr. Solomon's lab, I'm studying the rheological response of colloidal gels, which will provide insight into the manufacturing and storage of various commercialized goods produced by companies like P&G.
