Please join us in welcoming Dr. Davide Simone, a senior research chemist at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Dayton, OH, who will be presenting a talk on “High Performance Multifunctional Materials for Air Force Applications”. This seminar will highlight how the nation’s defense depends on the state-of-the-art materials chemistry to create protective equipment and weaponized vehicles that leverage strong polymers and polymer composites to protect our service men and women. Dr. Simone will also talk about how students and young polymer chemists can get involved in this exciting field of research.
Dr. Davide L. Simone received his B.S in Chemistry from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute (now NYU) with Professor Yoshi Okamoto in 1995 and his Ph.D. in organic/polymer chemistry in 2002 at MIT with Professor Timothy Swager. He spent 17 years at GE Global Research before joining the Air Force Research Lab in 2019. His current research includes chiral high performance resin development, autonomous reaction optimization/material discovery and molecular stress/strain sensing.
Seminar will be held via Zoom on Thursday, March 23rd, 2023, at 6:00 PM EDT. Please use the following link to access the seminar: https://american-chemical-society.zoom.com/j/87173340217
