|Dr. Barry Goodell|
Professor Barry Goodell has over 29 years of experience in the sustainable biomaterials and wood science and engineering fields, including work in bioconversion and bioenergy, structural biocomposites, and sustainable nanomaterials fields.
He holds a Doctorate from Oregon State University was previously a Professor at the University of Maine in the USA. He also previously was the Head of the Department of Sustainable Biomaterials Department which was restructured with that name under Dr. Goodell's leadership. He currently serves as a Professor in that department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). Dr. Goodell has
published over one hundred articles on wood and biomaterials degradation and protection, biochemical mechanisms related to free radical bioconversion processes, engineered wood composites as related to FRPs and PMCs and the development of novel
products including advanced hybrid biocomposites. He also holds four patents and two provisional patents, with other patents pending.
Bioprocessing and Bioconversion of woody biomass and lignocellulose materials,
Production of Carbon Nanotubes, Mesoporous carbon and Nanofibers from Wood and Plant Materials, and
Biocomposites, Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) and Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) Production.

What is the curious background design on this page? -- It is a TEM image of soft rot fungi attacking wood fiber (the image has been colorized and embossed). It shows fungal hyphae producing typical Type I soft rot cavities in the S2 layer of the wood cell wall.
