By combining rheological and microstructural measurements on carefully characterized model systems, Wilson Poon has transformed our understanding of the flow of colloidal gels, attractive and repulsive colloidal glasses, and non-Brownian suspensions of frictional particles. He has thereby elucidated universal principles underpinning the formulation of many industrial products.

A paper on the contributions of Prof. Wilson Poon on rheology will appear here and in the Rheology Bulletin.
