Materials science research using the novel technique of positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy. Almost any type of matter (polymer, crystal, metal, membrane, molecule) in any phase (solid, liquid, gas) can be analyzed if you have the creativity to design the sample set up and experiment. Typically, positron lifetime data is collected versus some other physical parameter (composition, temperature, age, pressure, etc.) to correlate nano-structural material changes with the experimental variable. Recent projects: 3D printed polymers, aircraft coatings, polymers under extreme pressure, bonding and molecular structure theory, nuclear structure theory.

Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty member whose interests align with your interests, be sure to
the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor
The Director of Undergraduate Research,
Dr. Jane Greer.
, can provide you with further guidance
about finding and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.
Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting with a potential faculty mentor, you
can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty member and to begin a conversation about
how you might work with that him or her.
