Chip Frazier's Research Collaboration with the University of Auburn

April 19, 2017 –  

By Chip Frazier

In February 2017, Chip Frazier’s research group hosted collaborators from the University of Auburn, at Auburn Alabama. Visiting were Dr. Soledad Peresin and her graduate student, Celeste Iglesias, who is trying to develop new materials from nano-fibrillated wood fiber. Dr. Ann Norris (Sustainable Biomaterials at Virginia Tech) trained Celeste on rheological tools that simply measure the flow properties of the fibers. Peresin and Frazier study how lignin impacts the fiber flow properties, and the properties of mats formed from the fibers.
