Faith Morrison is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. She is the President of the Society of Rheology and Editor of the Rheology Bulletin. Her research focuses on rheological, optical and scattering techniques to probe the morphology of flowing liquids. This research explores systems with structure, including high-molecular-weight polymers and block copolymers and sol-gels and suspensions. In addition to her numerous research publications, Morrison is the author of Understanding Rheology (2001).
