Professor Marilyn Minus, Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering
Marilyn Minus is an Associate Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. In addition to being a devoted teacher and mentor, Dr. Minus’ current research interests concern the structure-property relationships in nano-composites. Dr. Minus’ research is also focused in the area of fabrication and characterization of advanced high-performance polymer nano-composites. Polymers of interest include mainly those of linear architectures and biopolymers. Her work also looks at the interfacial interaction of these polymers with carbon nano-materials to understand morphological behavior in high-performance composites. Dr. Minus is a member of the Society of Plastic Engineers, American Chemical Society, and Materials Research Society. Prior to joining the faculty at Northeastern she was a Research Scientist at Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Polymer, Textile, and Fiber Engineering.
