Precise Polymer Microstructures Produce Nanoscale Morphologies for Improved Transport Properties

Biography

Prof. Karen I. Winey is the Department Chair, Professor and TowerBrook Foundation Faculty Fellow of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. She received her B.S. in materials science from Cornell University and her Ph.D. in polymer science and engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Following a postdoctoral position at AT&T Bell Laboratories, she joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. Her research lies in characterizing and manipulating nanoscale structures in ionomers and associating polymers to develop materials with improved mechanical and transport properties. Dr. Winey is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (2003), a Fellow of the Materials Research Society (2013), and a Fellow of the PMSE Division within the American Chemical Society (2016). In 2020, she was honored with both the Herman Mark Senior Scholar Award from the Polymer Division of the American Chemical Society and the Braskem Award from the Materials Engineering and Science Division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering. Karen has also held a variety of leadership roles including chair of the Polymer Physics Gordon Research Conference (2010), chair of the Division of Polymer Physics within the American Physics Society (2013-14), and department chair (2016 - ).
