Matthew Liberatore, Professor, The University of Toledo
Matthew has published over 80 peer reviewed articles and presented numerous invited talks. His teaching interests include developing problems from YouTube videos, active learning, and interactive textbooks. His rheology laboratory specializes in techniques parallel with rheology, including high pressure, light scattering, high shear, and controlled humidity. His current research involves the rheology of complex fluids. Specializing in polymers, colloids, and surfactant systems, projects have examined biomass slurries and solids flows, bio-oils, polyelectrolyte solutions for drag reduction, methane hydrate and ice slurries, emulsions, heavy crude oils, chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) slurries, polymer membranes for fuel cells, and polymer-graphene composites.
