Research

The Quinlan group is actively investigating fundamental aspects of intumescent coatings and effects of growth conditions on the phytochemical output of brewing components.

Biography

Dr. Quinlan received his PhD in 2009 for his research that focused on the chemical functionalization of graphene for advanced applications. After successfully defending his thesis he took at job at the US Patent and Trademark office before joining the research and development group of the Materials and Power Systems Branch at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock in 2010. In 2014 Dr. Quinlan joined the Molecular Biology and Chemistry department at Christopher Newport University where he continues his research in industrial coatings and thin films, food and agricultural chemistry, and environmental chemistry.
