UH Engineering kicked off the spring 2020 Distinguished Rockwell Lecture Series on Friday, January 24 featuring a lecture by Dr. Orlin Velev.

Orlin Velev is a S. Frank and Doris Culberson Distinguished Professor in the chemical and biomolecular engineering department at North Carolina State University. He is best known for his work on soft matter, colloid science and nanoscience.

Velev’s talk, “Liquid Nanofabrication of Functional Multiphasic Soft Matter by Capillary Binding and Interfacial Templating,” focused on his latest research on two new engineering strategies that use multiphasic liquid-liquid-polymer systems to make a rich variety of novel colloidal structures and materials.

The Rockwell Distinguished Lecture Series is named for Elizabeth Dennis Rockwell, a UH alumnae, industry expert and philanthropist who passed away in 2011.
