Dr. Solen is interested in increasing the compatibility of artificial organs with blood. He has developed several tools for assessing the reactions of blood to man-made materials and devices, and he and his students are working to understand the surface and flow characteristics that activate those reactions. Clicking on the "Research" link will provide more details. Dr. Solen is also interested in educational strategies in chemical engineering and has co-authored (along with Professor John Harb) the first-year course and textbook providing an Introduction to Chemical Engineering for first-year college students.
