Volker S Urban

Neutron Scattering Scientist

Volker Urban is an instrument scientist on the ORNL Bio-SANS instrument, HFIR beam line CG-3. His current scientific interests are in the fields of synthetic and biopolymers and complex fluids; in particular in understanding the relationship between the physicochemical properties of structure and dynamics and corresponding functionality in soft materials and biological systems. He received his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Muenster, Germany. Prior to joining ORNL, he was an instrument scientist at the  European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and postdoctoral research associate at the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source at Argonne National Laboratory.
