Polymer Researcher Joins MSU

Shiwang Cheng

Shiwang Cheng recently joined the Department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science as assistant professor.

He focuses on the mechanics and dynamics of polymers and polymer nanocomposites, especially the dynamics and mechanics of polymer nanocomposites, the fracture mechanics of thermoplastics, and novel polymer membranes for gas separation. He is working to design novel composite materials that can be applied to address emerging challenges in environment and energy, such as gas separation, desalination, batteries, and supercapacitors.

EDUCATION: PhD, polymer science, University of Akron

PREVIOUS: Postdoctoral fellow, dynamics and mechanics of polymer nanocomposites, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
