Ronald Larson became a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan in 1996, after working for 17 years at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey. He received a B.S in1975, an M.S. in 1977, and a Ph.D. in 1980, all in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota. Larson’s research interests include the structure and mechanical properties of viscous or elastic fluids, which include polymers, glasses, colloids, and biological materials. He is also interested in flow and yielding and transport modeling. He has written a 1998 textbook, “The Structure and Rheology of Complex Fluids.”
