Michael Rubinstein

Michael Rubinstein is John P. Barker Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, USA. Michael's research interests lie mainly in trying to understand the properties of various polymeric systems and to design new systems with even more interesting and useful properties. Using an approach based upon building and solving simple molecular models of different polymeric systems, his research aims to serve as an important bridge between analytical calculations and experiments.
