Faculty Mentors

Ed CastnerProfessor Ed Castner, of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, is a physical chemist interested in a broad range of problems involving intermolecular interactions and dynamics in the condensed phase.  Specific projects of interest in his group focus on room-temperature ionic liquids and polymer aggregates.  Current projects focus both on understanding the fundamental interactions between these new designer materials, as well as finding applications for them in fields as diverse as energy storage and environmental remediation.  The research team uses a broad array of experimental methods, including synchrotron-based high-energy X-ray scattering, neutron scattering, NMR, and ultrafast laser spectroscopy.  When not on campus, he might be organizing an international research symposium or conducting experiments at a national laboratory, or perhaps riding a bike to somewhere interesting or playing in a blues or funk club in Chicago, Europe, Japan, or right her in central NJ.  Watch for the debut of his new SAS Honors seminar in the Spring 2021 semester, "Existential Threats to Humanity‚Ķ"
