Cardinaels Receives Rheologist Award from TA Instruments
TA Instruments recently announced that the latest recipient of the Distinguished Young Rheologist award is Ruth Cardinaels, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Polymer Technology Group at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands). Cardinaels employs in-situ and time-resolved structure characterization techniques in combination with diagnostic flow types. Her research attempts to develop a fundamental understanding of flow-induced morphology development of multi-phasic materials such as polymer blends and nanocomposites, suspensions, emulsions, and food products. In these studies, rheology’s potential as an indirect structure probing technique is exploited and extended.
“TA recognizes academia as a source of product innovation and research into new materials and applications that continue to grow the rheometer market,” said Terry Kelly, president. “Our strong commitment to the academic market has been demonstrated for many years through our Academic Matching Grant program. The Distinguished Young Rheologist award is our newest program in support of our vision to maintain our leading market position through strong partnerships with the academic community.”
