Linda S. Schadler appointed JMR Associate Editor, Polymers and Organic Materials

    Journal of Materials Research Editor-in-Chief Gary Messing is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Linda S. Schadler as Associate Editor for Polymers and Organic Materials. “Professor Schadler brings a wealth of knowledge to this expanding and increasingly vital research area for JMR,” remarks Dr. Messing. Professor Schadler is the Russell Sage Professor in Materials Science and Engineering and the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the School of Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


    Professor Schadler is an experimentalist and her research has focused on the behavior of two-phase systems, primarily polymer composites. Her interests currently include the mechanical, optical, and electrical behavior of nanofilled polymer composites. A longtime active member of MRS, Professor Schadler has received numerous honors, including a National Science Foundation National Young Investigator award in 1994, the ASM International Bradley Staughton Award for Teaching in 1997, and a Dow Outstanding New Faculty member award from the American Society of Engineering Education in 1998. She is a current member of ASM International’s Board of Trustees. Professor Schadler was named as one of the Top 100 Materials Scientists worldwide in the last decade by Times Higher Education, 2011. Dr. Messing states, “We look forward to working with Professor Schadler as we expand coverage over the increasing range of new materials properties and applications of advanced polymers.”
