Research Focus & Mission

Our research focuses on novel nanometer-structured polymers and nanocomposites, as they lead to the next generation of materials, enable new applications, and unravel the relevant science in the field. Our approaches span the range of:
  • engineering development of nanocomposites
  • chemistry-processing-structure-property relationships
  • synthesis and characterization
  • experimental physical chemistry and polymer science
  • molecular modeling and theory
Since its inception, our group has pioneered efforts for the prediction of physicochemical properties of complex nanostructured materials (polymers, surfaces, and nanocomposites). From an engineering viewpoint we focus on new materials development that can, and have been, utilized to enable new applications. All our efforts are solidly based on fundamental advances in our understanding of soft matter at the nanometer scale and on our predictive use of basic science.
