Dr. Travis S Bailey
Dr. Travis Bailey joined the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering as an assistant professor in July of 2005. Dr. Bailey received B.S. degrees in both Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from University of Florida in 1995, and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 2001. His research interests at Colorado State focus on the synthesis of novel self-assembling polymer systems and their applications in a variety of environments, including polymer-based photovoltaics, ion- and hydro-gel-based membranes and separations media, chemical delivery vehicles, and stimuli-responsive "smart materials. They are interested in the thermodynamics of and dynamics of shape memory and recovery in these types of materials, and developing strategies to exploit these properties in applications such as those listed above.
