CBE Centennial Seminar Series: Arthi Jayaraman (Univ. of Delaware)

April 5 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Arthi Jayaraman


Linking computational techniques to experiments for establishing design-structure-property relationships in soft materials.
My research group’s expertise lies in the development of physics-based molecular models and simulation methods as well as data-driven machine learning models for designing and characterizing soft macromolecular materials.  In this talk, I will highlight examples from my group’s recent work to showcase how we develop and use computational tools (e.g., CREASE and PairVAE) to interpret experimental characterization data from small angle scattering and electron microscopy. I will also show how we link our experimental collaborators’ results to our molecular modeling and simulation work to establish design-structure and structure-property relationships for soft materials (synthetic- & bio- polymers, colloids) and formulations.


Arthi Jayaraman is currently a full professor in the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Delaware (UD), Newark. She is also the director for an NSF-funded NRT graduate traineeship program on ​‘Computing and Data Science Training for Materials Innovation, Discovery, and Analytics’. She serves as editor for both American Chemical Society (ACS) journals Macromolecules and ACS Polymers Au (gold). Jayaraman received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from North Carolina State University and conducted her postdoctoral research in Materials Science and Engineering at University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. After holding the position of Patten Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at University of Colorado (CU) at Boulder, in 2014 she joined the faculty at UD. Jayaraman’s research expertise is in development of molecular modeling, theory and simulation techniques and application of these techniques to study polymer nanocomposites, blends, and solutions, and biomaterials. She has received the following honors: UD College of Engineering Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching (2023), AIChE COMSEF Impact Award (2021), American Physical Society (APS) Fellowship (2020), Dudley Saville Lectureship at Princeton University (2016), ACS PMSE Young Investigator (2014),  AIChE COMSEF division Young Investigator Award (2013), CU Provost Faculty Achievement Award (2013), Department of Energy (DOE) Early Career Research Award (2010), and CU Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering’s outstanding undergraduate teaching award (2011) and graduate teaching award (2014).
