Biography Summary

Mark Matsen holds a joint position as a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo. He is also a member of the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology.

His research focuses on theory and simulations involving the self-assembly of nanostructured polymers, such as block copolymers, liquid-crystalline polymers, polyelectrolytes and polymeric brushes. While he continues to build on his reputation for self-consistent field theory (SCFT), Professor Matsen is currently developing the next generation of theoretical techniques, specifically field-theoretic simulations (FTS).

Professor Matsen has published over 135 papers in refereed journals, generating more than 13,500 citations and an h-index of 55. He is also an editor for Physical Review Letters and the European Physical Journal E: Soft Matter. His research record has earned him an international reputation, which was acknowledged by the American Physical Society in 2008 when he was made a fellow for his “seminal contributions to the development and implementation of the self-consistent field theory for block-copolymer materials and polymeric brushes.”
