Bio-inspired Materials: Structural Color in Nature
George Degen, Graduate student in the Department of Chemical Engineering at UCSB wrote an article for the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Bio-inspired Materials Structural Color in Nature. This post is the first in a series, Bio-Inspired Materials: From Nature to Technology. The series explores the science behind natural materials and how researchers use nature's tricks to design new bioinspired materials. .
George Degen's research focus on understanding marine mussel adhesion to guide the design of improved wet adhesives for biomedical applications. He also presented his research during Science Pub: Sticky When Wet-Underwater Superglue from Marine Mussels in March 2020.
