A Sharp Professor of Forest Products, Sellers worked at MSU as a researcher and educator for 24 years before retiring in 2004.

Sellers’ book, “Plywood and Adhesive Technology,” has received worldwide praise. Many of his publications have been translated into Japanese and Spanish. He has worked as a private consultant for academic, governmental and industry clients in 16 countries.
During his tenure at MSU, he received a patent on his work with kenaf, a fibrous plant similar to bamboo.

He has also received accolades from Shell Oil Co. for adhesive research and the Forest Products Society for outstanding service to the profession.
