About Me

Angel Romo-Uribe received his M. Sc. degree in Physics from National University of Mexico in 1990. He attended graduate school at the University of Cambridge, where he received a Ph.D. degree in Materials Science in 1996. Graduate research focused on in-situ X-ray scattering and rheology of thermotropic polymers under shear. He then spent two years at the Air Force Research Laboratories researching on POSS nanocomposites. Romo-Uribe diverse industrial experience comprises work at Hoechst Celanese R&D Corp, Ticona (Celanese's Engineering Polymers Division), and Rohm & Haas Corporate Research Labs. X-ray scattering and rheology research areas over these years included linear polymer melts, fiber reinforced composites, coatings, liquid crystalline polymers, polymer blends and polymer nanocomposites. In 2006, Romo-Uribe was hired into the position of Professor of Physics at the National University of Mexico where he founded the Lab. de Nanopolimeros y Coloides, and established a research program on nanostructured coatings, electrospun polymeric scaffolds, and smart nanostructured biopolymers with shape memory properties and thermo-responsive hydrogels, graduating 6 PhD and 13 MSc students and supervising 4 Postdoctoral researchers. Romo-Uribe returned to USA in 2013 to initiate a program on smart polymers for food packaging in ConAgra Foods Inc. before accepting a position at the Advanced Science and Technologies division of Johnson and Johnson Vision Care Inc., where rheology, spectroscopy and thermo-mechanical techniques are being applied to probe the dynamics of polymer networks and other complex fluids.
