Dr. Thomas is a science communicator at the intersection of materials science research, ideation and innovation. Currently employed with Owens Corning Science & Technology, she has had roles in process development for residential insulation, corporate sustainability and government affairs. An industrial scientist, she has an interest in structure-property relationships and how they impact the end product/material performance. Her graduate work investigated the use of self-assembling small molecules to create biomimetic architecture within soft polymer scaffolds. She hypothesized that the specific imparted geometry would allow for the creation of artificial environments that closely resemble systems found in vivo. A Fulbright scholar constantly in search of ways to leverage scientific innovation in business and entrepreneurship applications, she completed her PhD in chemical engineering in 2013 researching self assembling small molecules to design materials for neural applications.
