Jennifer Monahan's research is broadly divided into two categories. Students interested
in Surface Science investigate adhesion, work to develop quantitative measurement techniques for moderate
length scales (ranges relevant for microfluidic or biological adhesion). Students
interested in Chemical Education develop an array of projects for the undergraduate teaching labs. Those interested
in becoming a science teacher can work on pedagogical development for an array of
different chemistry sub-disciplines related to Monahan's courses.
