Dr. Jaeger is a physicist whose current research focuses on investigations of self-assembled nanoparticle-based structures, on the flow of matter of dense suspensions, and on studies of the packing and flow of granular materials. His lab is investigating materials under conditions that give rise to complex phenomena, gaining insights in how to control properties in unique ways and design whole new classes of smart materials. He is a former director of the James Franck Institute and the Chicago Materials Research Center at the University of Chicago. He received a Ph.D. in physics from University of Minnesota, working on ultrathin superconducting films.
