Project Description

Dr. Albert is an assistant professor and the Robert and Gayle Longmire Early Career Professor in Chemical Engineering at Tulane University. She received her B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Florida and her Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware. Her doctoral and postdoctoral research focused on developing gradient methods for exploring the effects of surface interactions on block copolymer thin film self-assembly and tailoring the chemical and mechanical properties of silicone elastomer networks for cell mobility studies and peptide assembly. At Tulane, Dr. Albert’s research is centered on the use of combinatorial methods to engineer nano- and micro-structured polymeric materials for applications in energy, health, and the environment. Specifically, she takes advantage of the phase separation processes responsible for self-assembly in block copolymers and polymer blends to produce materials in thin film geometries exhibiting desired morphologies.
