Crystal E. Owens

Crystal E. Owens is a School of Engineering Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow whose research lies at the intersection of precision manufacturing and complex fluid mechanics. Specifically, Owens seeks to improve manufacturing processes involving polymeric and structured fluids. As a doctoral student, Owens studied ink rheology and developed a direct-write printing technique for carbon nanotube (CNT) based inks, enabling the printing of flexible electronics as sensors. Now, as a postdoc in computational fabrication, she will focus on developing computational methods to design and evaluate new polymers fit for practical applications and develop new fabrication methods to create microarchitected materials from liquid solutions to build a path to better tissue engineering.
