Dr. Schulman applies concepts of chemical engineering, material science and chemistry to investigate and analyze incidents involving reactive materials, explosions, fires, and chemical processes. Dr. Schulman has studied the nature and mechanism of explosion in reactive materials in the context of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal. He additionally has experience investigating chemical process incidents, such as distillation and extraction processes. Dr. Schulman has extensive experience in the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for energy storage related applications. He is well trained in many laboratory techniques, especially the use of microscopic and spectroscopic methods such as Raman, FTIR, UV-Vis and SEM/TEM. Dr. Schulman has additional expertise and experience using such computational tools such as MATLAB, Octave, Julia, Mathematica and process simulation tool such as Aspen Plus and HYSYS. 

After graduating from CCNY, Dr. Schulman began pursuing his Ph.D. at Cornell University. Before beginning his graduate studies, Dr. Schulman interned at Corning Incorporated and examined the surface texturing of gorilla glass with nanomaterials for biomedical application. Dr. Schulman's dissertation work at Cornell University focused on cost effective graphene synthesis via liquid phase exfoliation for energy storage applications. Additionally, Dr. Schulman researched CFD modeling of planar flow casting of glassy metallic alloys via OpenFOAM, using modified fluid dynamic packages During his Ph.D., Dr. Schulman routinely focused on scaling production for industrial usage and routinely meeting with industry sponsors (executives, scientist, and engineers) to demonstrate and present his work.
