Dr. Vivek Sharma is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Illinois Chicago. Dr. Sharma’s Soft Matter ODES-lab (optics, dynamics, elasticity and self-assembly laboratory) focuses on molecular science and engineering of formulations (multicomponent complex fluids). His group develops distinctive experiments and theory for investigating interfacial flows & instabilities, surface forces, optics, self-assembly, and nonlinear viscoelasticity of industrial and biological soft matter. Dr. Sharma received Ph. D. (Polymers/MSE, 2008) and M. S. (Chemical Engineering, 2006) from Georgia Tech., and pursued post-doctoral research in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. Dr. Sharma was selected as the Distinguished Young Rheologist by TA Instruments in 2015, won the 2017 College of Engineering Teaching Award at UIC, and was awarded the 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award in 2019.
