Author Biographies

Eric D. Carlson, Stanford University

Eric Carlson is a chemical engineering PhD candidate at Stanford University, studying the optical-rheology of elastomeric polypropylene with Prof. Gerald G. Fuller. He earned his MS from Stanford University and his BS from North Carolina State University, where he was introduced to the joys of cooperative learning. On the few occasions he escapes from the lab, he enjoys mountain biking, rollerblading, volleyball, and poor attempts at golf.

Alice P. Gast, Stanford University

Alice Gast is Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. She obtained her BS from the University of Southern California and her PhD from Princeton University. Her research interests in complex fluids combine statistical mechanical models of suspensions and solutions with neutron, X-ray, and light scattering experiments. Among other activities, she enjoys regular trips to the San Francisco Zoo and Monterey Aquarium.
