Jared Morrissette

PhD Candidate

Mechanical & Industrial Engineering


Research Statement: 

Jared is working on liquid-repellent coatings. These coatings are made using various material systems, where some are entirely water-based and can repel water, while others are fluorinated and are repellent to low-surface-tension liquids. Throughout the coating development process, Jared uses numerous physical/chemical characterization techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).

Activities/Hobbies outside of research: 

Jared’s hobbies include music(drums/percussion), biking, photography, and camping.
