James Polson

Biography

Title: Associate Professor

Education: BSc, Guelph (1988); MSc, Guelph (1990); PhD, British Columbia (1996)

James Polson uses computer simulations and analytical theoretical methods to study the physical properties of polymers in solution. Recently, his research has focused on the effects of solvent on the polymer collapse transition. The knowledge gained from this work could contribute to our understanding of the related process of protein folding, which in turn could lead to advances in the health sciences.
