Lilo D. Pozzo is the Boeing-Roundhill Professor of Chemical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her research focuses on controlling and manipulating the structure of soft matter for applications in healthcare, alternative energy, chemical manufacturing and separations. Her group also focuses on developing and utilizing experimental high-throughput tools and techniques to accelerate deployment timelines for new materials, and she is an expert in the use of neutron and x-ray scattering techniques for the analysis of colloids and polymers. Professor Pozzo obtained her BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez in 2001 and her PhD in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh PA in 2006. She also worked at the NIST Center for Neutron Research as a postdoctoral fellow, and has served at the University of Washington since 2007. She has also been recognized with the Early Career Award from the US Department of Energy and with the C3E Award for Women in Clean Energy.
