Research: 

Professor Ortony’s research interests consist of two main thrusts: (1) The design and optimization of soft materials with nanoscale structure for important new technologies, and (2) The development of advanced instrumentation for measuring conformational and water dynamics analogous to molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Professor Ortony's group combines these efforts to investigate technologies focused on energy and environmental applications with special consideration paid to molecular motion.

There are two MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipients on the DMSE faculty.
