This week we welcome Dr. Matthew Dunbar on the show to discuss shape shifting composites. Shape-shifting materials are not new, but their use has been limited. On this episode we'll be talking about these fascinating materials & some some of the determining factors or environmental triggers that lead them to change shape. We'll also be discussing how these materials are being used by 3D printers to create structures that can alter shape at particular times. 

Dr. Matthew Dunbar has been a member of the scientific analysis team at Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) for more than 18 years, with a focus on polymeric substances and applications.  In this role he is one of hundreds of scientists building the CAS content collection by extracting and connecting key details from globally published scientific literature and enhancing discoverability of this information to support innovation. Dr. Dunbar earned a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from University of California at Davis, and a PhD in Polymer Science from University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
