Dr. Marilyn Minus is a Professor and Chair for the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, USA. Prior to joining the faculty at Northeastern she completed her PhD at Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Polymer, Textile, and Fiber Engineering.
Dr. Minus’ research interests concern the structure-property relationships in nano-composites. Dr. Minus’ research is also focused in the area of fabrication and characterization of advanced high-performance polymer nano-composites. Polymers of interest include mainly those of linear architectures and biopolymers. Her work also looks at the interfacial interaction of these polymers with carbon nano-materials to understand morphological behavior in high-performance composites.
Dr. Minus is a member of the Society of Plastic Engineers, Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering, American Chemical Society, and Materials Research Society.
