Dr. Nina Shapley

Nina Shapley earned her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 2000, investigating particle velocity fluctuations in concentrated suspension flows. Her postdoctoral research at University of California, Davis, involved MRI measurements of emulsion flows and mixing. She began her faculty career as an Assistant Professor at Columbia University in the Department of Chemical Engineering. Currently, she is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University, as well as the departmental Undergraduate Program Director. Her current research focuses on advancing fundamental discoveries regarding particulate flows and particle technology toward environmental and health applications. Ongoing projects include developing sustainable particulate materials for water purification and high performance natural pigments, understanding the flow properties of complex fluids involved in personal care products, and improving cake filtration of catalyst materials.
