Lynden Archer

James A. Friend Family Distinguished Professor
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Professor Archer received the Career Award from the National Science Foundation, 1996, Dupont Young Professor Award 1996-1999, 3M Company Non-Tenured Faculty Award 1995, and the George Armistead Faculty Fellowship 1999-2000.  Lynden joined the Cornell faculty in 2000. He was appointed director of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering in 2010. Since 2008 he has served as co-director of the KAUST-Cornell Center for Energy and Sustainability.


His research focuses on transport properties of polymers and organic-inorganic hybrid materials. Archer is also interested in applications of hybrid materials for energy storage and carbon capture technologies.

Research in the Archer group focuses on the synthesis, science, and technological applications of polymers, complex fluids, and nanoscale organic-inorganic hybrid materials (NOHMs) for electrochemical energy storage.
