Dr. Shofner’s experience in both industry and academia offer the chance for a wide range of comparison for anyone who joins her for lunch. Dr. Shofner joined the Materials Science and Engineering department as an Assistant Professor following post-doctoral training at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Prior to pursuing graduate work, she was employed as a design engineer at FMC in the Subsea Engineering Division, working at two plant locations (Houston, Texas and the Republic of Singapore), and she is a registered Professional Engineer in Georgia.  Her research group is concerned with structure-property relationships in polymer nanocomposite materials and with producing structural hierarchy in these materials for structural and functional applications.  This research has been recognized by the Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from Oak Ridge Associate Universities and the Solvay Advanced Polymers Young Faculty Award.
