Our lab’s research is centered on the synthesis and characterization of functional polymeric materials. The core of this research is aimed at leveraging synthetic techniques and processing methods to manipulate polymer structures at various length scales and to use these structures to control bulk and interfacial material properties. We study both synthetic polymers and naturally occurring biopolymers, with current research projects focusing on advanced materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
