Current Research Interest

     My graduate research falls under the general field of colloids and interface science, with an emphasis on nonpolar colloid systems. Specifically, I am studying the electrical properties of these surfactant-stabilized systems. The current research can be divided into two topics: 

 

     1.  Effect of Particle and Surfactant Chemistry

·   Published Paper: Gacek, M.; Brooks, G.; Berg, J.C. Langmuir 2012, la204000t

 

     2.  Trace Water Effects
