TA Instruments recently announced the latest recipient of the Distinguished Young Rheologist award: Rossana Pasquino. Ph.D., associate professor at the University of Naples Fredrico II. The Distinguished Young Rheologist Award recognizes young faculty members that show exceptional promise in the field of rheology and is designed to accelerate their research through equipment grants. Recipients are nominated by a group of the most established and respected academic researchers in the field.

Pasquino is reportedly being recognized for her work in the rheology of complex fluids, using it as a tool to detect morphology and microscopic properties. Over the course of her career, she has been involved in various aspects of the soft matter world, with a focus on the rheological properties of viscoelastic solutions, colloids and polymers.

“Academic research into novel materials continues to expand the scope of rheological measurements into exciting new applications and market segments,” said Terry Kelly, president of TA Instruments. “Our programs like the Academic Matching Grant and Distinguished Young Rheologist awards demonstrate our strong and continued commitment to academia.”
