Research Statement
The research of Forest relates to theory, modeling, and simulation of macromolecular fluids, including high-performance polymeric materials processing. Forest works on the advancement of models at the kinetic (molecular), mesoscopic, and continuum scales, and on the multi-scale analysis and computation required to understand and simulate these systems. Forest has developed industrial models and codes for synthetic fiber spinlines used world-wide by Hoechst Celanese Corporation, and has contributed toward the fundamental mathematical issues in soft matter modeling. The current focus is on films and full 3 dimensional materials processing of nano-composites, including rod-like and platelet nano-elements.
