Joel Shore received his BS in physics from Haverford College in 1986 and his PhD in theoretical physics from Cornell University in 1992, working with Professor Jim Sethna. After postdoctoral positions at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and McGill University in Montreal, he came to Rochester in 1996 to work at Eastman Kodak Company. At Kodak, he did computational modeling for research and development in a variety of product areas, most recently organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and is an inventor on 18 U.S. patents. He came to RIT in 2009.

Research Interests

Joel's research interests have, over time, included the glass transition and the slow growth of order in simple model systems, equilibrium crystal shapes and crystal growth, the flow of polymer melts, and optical modeling and light extraction in OLEDs. Recently, he has also developed an interest in global climate change.
