Dr. Rama Bansil

Expert Witness and Consultant: Gels, Biopolymer Engineering, Polymer Engineering, and Biochemistry


About Dr. Bansil

Dr. Bansil has more than 35 years’ experience as a polymer expert, with publications in the field dating back to 1976. Her most recent research has focused on the molecular structure of gels, the physics of gel formation, diffusion in gels and the kinetics of phase transitions and chemical reactions in gels. She is currently Professor of Physics at Boston University, a post she had held since 1997.

She has served as an expert witness in intellectual properties litigation and is a sought-after consultant.
