Research Areas

Research Interests

Current research in the Musselman Group has 4 emphases with a microscopy theme in common. Projects include:

  • Mechanisms of contrast and limits of contrast resolution in scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) images of molecular adsorbates
  • Peptide/single-walled carbon nanotube interactions explored using STM and atomic force microscopy (AFM)
  • Fabrication and testing of polymer-based mixed-matrix membranes for gas separations
  • Development and testing of high temperature proton exchange membranes for fuel cells

Musselman Named UT Dallas Provost, Vice President for Academic Affairs
Dr. Inga Musselman, professor of chemistry at UT Dallas, has been named provost and vice president for academic affairs for the University. She has been the interim provost since 2015. 
UT Dallas President Richard C. Benson said the choice for the University’s chief academic officer was made after a national search and an extensive interview process involving top candidates. The appointment was effective Dec. 1. 

“Dr. Musselman emerged from an extraordinarily strong pool of candidates. She has a stellar record as an educator, researcher and administrator, along with a deep understanding of UT Dallas,” Benson said. “She has served with distinction during her time as interim provost, and I am delighted to continue working with her in leading our University.”
Musselman to Expand Administrative Role as Senior Vice Provost for the University
Dr. Inga Musselman, professor of chemistry at UT Dallas, has been named senior vice provost for the University.  

Musselman, an analytical chemist, joined the UT Dallas faculty in 1992 and since 2008 has been associate provost. In the Office of the Provost, she has overseen the process of faculty review, promotion and tenure. In her new expanded role, Musselman will continue to lead that process while assuming additional important responsibilities in the areas of personnel and finance.
U. T. Dallas’ Dr. Inga Musselman New President of Microbeam Analysis Society
RICHARDSON, Texas (Sept. 7, 2004) – Dr. Inga Holl Musselman, associate professor of chemistry at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), last month became president of the Microbeam Analysis Society (MAS), a national organization of scientists, researchers and other users of high-powered microscopy. 

Musselman assumed the group’s top leadership position at the annual MAS scientific meeting, “Microscopy and Microanalysis 2004,” held in Savannah, Ga., after having served as president-elect of the society for the past year. She will preside over next year’s annual meeting, to be held in late July and early August in Honolulu.
Musselman Receives Distinguished Alumni Award
Dr. Inga Musselman, interim provost and professor of chemistry at UT Dallas, recently was named a distinguished alumna of Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania.

“These awards are the highest ones given by the Alumni Association, and we are proud to recognize these alumni for their accomplishments and service,” said Susan Pyron, associate vice president for annual giving, alumni and parent relations at Gettysburg.
Two UTD Researchers Win Grants Worth $300,000
RICHARDSON, Texas (May 3, 2002) - Two researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) received grants totaling $300,000 from the Houston-based Welch Foundation, which annually funds basic chemistry research in Texas. 

        The two scientists - both from UTD's Department of Chemistry - each received three-year grants of $150,000. The grant recipients and the titles of their respective research are:

  •    Dr. A. Dean Sherry, professor of chemistry, "Lanthanide DOTA-tetraamide Complexes as Biological Sensors."
  •    Dr. Inga Holl Musselman, associate professor of chemistry, "Chemical Contrast in STM Images of Materials for Molecular Scale Sensors and Device Structures."
