Mason Dearborn

Mason Dearborn grew up in the suburbs of Chicago but headed south for his undergraduate career at the University of Southern Mississippi. There he used RAFT to synthesize stimuli-responsive polymeric drug delivery vehicles under Dr. Charles McCormick. Now, in the Esser-Kahn Research Group, he uses frontal polymerization for energy-efficient manufacturing of polymers and composites as high-performance materials.
