The Sobkowicz research group is interested in the study of polymeric materials for environmental sustainability. We use the tools of applied polymer science, transport phenomena and chemical functionalization to manipulate processes and structure with the aim of improving properties in sustainable materials. Current projects focus on:
We are also interested in science communication to improve public understanding of the role plastics play in our society and ecosystems. Professor Sobkowicz is also working to broaden participation of women in engineering through her work with the WAVES initiative.
