In-Situ Studies of Structure/Property/Processing Relationships in Polymer Nanocomposites

Benjamin S. Hsiao

Benjamin S. Hsiao

Professor, Department of Chemistry & Spokesperson for Advanced Polymers Beamline (X27C) at National Synchrotron Light Source
State University of New York at Stony Brook

Benjamin S. Hsiao received his B.S. degree from Chemical Engineering Department, National Taiwan University in 1980 and his Ph.D. degree from Institute of Materials Science, University of Connecticut in 1987. He carried out his postdoctoral training at University of Massachusetts from 1987-1989 before his tenure at DuPont Fibers and then Central Research and Development for eight years. Currently, he is a Professor in the Chemistry Department and an affiliated member in the Biomedical Engineering Department in the Stony Brook University. He is also the spokesperson for Advanced Polymer PRT (X27C) Beamline* at the National Synchrotron Light Source, Brookhaven National Laboratory. He became a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2002. He is on the editorial advisory boards of Polymer; Journal of Macromolecular Science – Physics; Journal of Polymer Research; High Performance Polymers; Chinese Journal of Applied Chemistry. He has over 280 reviewed publications and book chapters, 170 conference proceedings, 2 edited books and 5 issued patents. His current research interests include polymer physics (structure, morphology, property and processing) with an emphasis of nanostructured materials, biomedical and environmental applications.

*X27C routinely serves more than 80 researchers from over 20 international institutes every year and is the first dedicated small-angle scattering beamline with simultaneous SAXS/WAXD capability in the U.S. (http://www.bnl.gov/nsls/x27c/hsiao.htm).
