The majority of Ryan Clarke's research lies at the interface of sustainability and performance in the grand challenge of thermoset redesign. Clarke is currently working on  sustainable (biodegradable, chemically recyclable) rubbers toward redesigning tire materials, as well as the formulation and scale-up of fiber-reinforced composites for renewable energy infrastructures (wind blades) with similar end-of-life avenues. To the latter, his team recently constructed a fully-recyclable 9-m wind blade. In other areas, he performs polymer synthesis, blend compatibilization, and enjoys advanced material characterizations such as rheology and microscopy.
