Our research group has expanded from its original focus of designing atomically perfect complex materials. Funded subgroups have emerged to solve national security (chemical weapons detection, secure time and frequency) or existential (protective armor) problems.
The proposed research is highly multidisciplinary and sits at the interface of scientific interest and technological applications, making each research project capable of funding for both basic research (NSF, DOE) and directed applications (DOD, industrial partnerships).
Hauser group gratefully acknowledges nearly $3.4M in funding support from the NSF, Army Research Office, Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense through various pass-through entities.
Congratulations to our newest group graduates, including:
Adam Grice - Clemson University (physics graduate program)
Andrew Stewart - Clemson University (PharmD program)
Jalen Cates - University of Arizona (Applied math graduate program)
Michael Bartz - Founder, Foresense Solutions, LLC
We are always seeking motivated researchers from undergraduates to postdoctoral researchers.
