Tim White completed his PhD at the University of Iowa. Thereafter he went on to become a Senior Research Engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory in the US. In July, Tim was appointed as the Gallogly Professor of Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder where he has founded the Responsive and Programmable Materials Group.
His current research activities are broadly focused on harnessing stimuli response in liquid crystalline materials to realize shape transformation or optical reconfiguration.
Tim will give his lecture and receive his certificate at the International Soft Matter Conference in Edinburgh in June.
