Dr. Abbott is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests span colloid, interface, and surfactant science. A particular focus is directed toward the design of new surfactants that can be placed under active control, the use of liquid crystalline materials to amplify biomolecular interactions, and the design of interfaces with chemistry and topography patterned on nanometer dimensions. His work has been recognized by honors, which include a Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering, a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award and a Fulbright Fellowship. He has published in leading journals, including Science, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Physical Review Letters and Langmuir.
