Lisa Hall is an Associate Profesor at the Ohio State University, having joined in 2012 as the H.C. “Slip” Slider Assistant Professor, in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Previously, Hall was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Computational Materials Science and Engineering at Sandia National Laboratories. She earned her PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Kenneth Schweizer, and her undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The Hall group applies statistical mechanical theories and molecular dynamics simulations to investigate structural, thermodynamic, and dynamic phenomena in soft materials. Of particular interest are polymeric systems containing ions or nanoparticles in which the interactions and structure on the monomer to polymer radius of gyration scales are crucial to capture in order to understand the macroscopic behavior of the material.
