The Soft Matter & Bioinspired Materials group is located in the Hasbrouck building on the campus of UMass-Amherst. 

University of Massachusetts, Amherst is located in the valley of the Connecticut River, also known as 'the Pioneer Valley'. Only a few hours drive from Boston, New York City, and Montreal, the Pioneer Valley offers all the advantages of a large metropolitan area, but without the hustle and bustle of the city.
