Thomas G. Mason is Associate Professor and John McTague Chair of Chemistry of the University of California- Los Angeles, and of the California NanoSystems Institute. Prof. Mason received a Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton University in 1995, and B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics with High Honors from the University of Maryland in 1989. In 2006, he was the recipient of the Glenn T. Seaborg Award (Beta Gamma Chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma), and in 2005 he received the Gallery of Fluid Motion Award with T. Cubaud (American Physical Society DFD), and the NSF CAREER Award (National Science Foundation).

Prof. Mason’s current research interests include:

  • Microrheology: measuring the dynamic mechanical shear properties of viscoelastic soft materials over an extraordinarily large range of time scales by optically observing the diffusive motion of micron-sized probe particles embedded in these materials
  • Shear-induced structures in complex fluids: emulsification, shear-banding, shear-ordering
  • Neutron and light scattering from nanomaterials: asphaltenes, clays, droplets, polymers
  • Directed assembly of nanoparticles in solution using shape-dependent attractive interactions
  • Free boundary flows in microfluidic devices
  • Structure and dynamics of soft colloidal glasses

Speaking in the special symposium on Nanostructured Fluids, Soft Materials, and Self-Assembly.
