Linda S. Schadler joined Rensselaer in 1996 and is currently the Russell Sage Professor in Materials Science and Engineering and the associate dean of academic affairs in the School of Engineering. She graduated from Cornell University in 1985 with a B.S. in materials science and engineering, and received a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering in 1990 from the University of Pennsylvania. After two years of postdoctoral work at IBM Yorktown Heights, Schadler served as a faculty member at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before coming to Rensselaer.

Active in materials research for more than 20 years, Schadler is an experimentalist and her research has focused on the micromechanical behavior of two-phase systems, primarily polymer composites. Her interests currently include the mechanical, optical and electrical behavior of nano-filled polymer composites. She has co-authored more than 140 journal publications, several book chapters and one book. Schadler received a National Science Foundation National Young Investigator Award in 1994 and the ASM International Bradley Staughton Award for Teaching in 1997.     [ Click for More ]
