John Muzzy

Emeritus Professor and Chairman of the Multidisciplinary Polymer Engineering Program

Dr. Muzzy's primary research is on composite materials properties and processing. This research includes characterization and modeling thermoplastic composite processes, investigating new techniques for coating carbon fibers, and analyzing the micromechanics of composites. He has done additional research on polymetric medical implants and on a novel process for extracting lignin from biomass. He has directed several conferences for the Society of Plastics Engineers.
