Polymeric Materials:

Tailored Structure, Properties, and Function

The objective of our research group is to develop polymeric materials with enhanced physical properties and function. We specialize in polymer synthetic techniques, structural characterization (small-angle neutron, x-ray and light scattering), thermodynamics and self-assembly, and development of structure-property relationships. 

Research projects are focused on the following areas:

Sustainable and biodegradable polymers derived from renewable resources

Advanced materials for wind energy

Structure and dynamics of block copolymer micelles

pH-responsive, antifouling polymer brushes

Multicomponent and multiphase polymer blends
