Dr. Lucas Landherr received his Bachelor’s degree from Lafayette College in 2005 with an honors thesis studying drag-reducing polymers. He then completed his Ph.D. at Cornell University in 2010, developing and characterizing thin polymer films and brushes as nanoscale lubricants. While at Cornell, he received a GK-12 NSF Fellowship, with which he designed curriculum and physics experiments for high school classrooms. Most recently, Dr. Landherr completed an NRC Postdoctoral Research Associateship with the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 2012, where he conducted research on polymeric interactions with superhydrophobic surfaces.
Dr. Landherr has been appointed to Assistant Academic Specialist in the Department of Chemical Engineering, starting in the fall of 2012.
