Robert B. Moore
received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Texas A&M University in 1988, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Chemistry at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. In 1991, he joined the faculty of the Department of Polymer Science at The University of Southern Mississippi, where he served for 17 years. In 2007, he moved to Virginia Tech to join the faculty in the Department of Chemistry. Professor Moore has 26 years of academic experience in the field of Polymer Physical Chemistry, during which he has given over 145 invited lectures and authored over 220 publications (with over 5,900 citations).
Dr. Moore\’s research is focused in the area of ion-containing polymers for energy applications, with specific interests that include: nano-structured electrodes and electrolytes for Li battery applications, control of morphology-transport property relationships in proton exchange membrane fuel cell systems, tailored actuation behavior in nano-structured materials, and the use of small-angle x-ray and neutron scattering methods for the characterization of morphology in ion-containing polymers.
Dr. Moore is a Fellow of the ACS, Fellow Polymer Chemistry Division of the ACS, and Councilor for the Polymer Chemistry Division of the ACS. He has been an instructor with the American Chemical Society since 2008.
