Dr. Ann Fornof joins CeNS as extraordinary member
The new CeNS member, Dr. Ann Fornof, is broadly interested in structure-property relationships of synthetic polymers. She is currently a postdoc in Prof. Dr. Hermann Gaub’s group studying the relationship between polyelectrolyte adhesion and surface potential. Ann received her Ph.D. in Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Virginia Tech in Prof. Tim Long’s group, where her work focused on polymer branching and its influence on non-covalent interactions. After completion of her Ph.D., she was an IBM postdoctoral fellow for one year at IBM, Almaden Research Center.
