About Our Research


Our research program focuses on the rational design and development of structurally precise organic polymeric materials and nanostructures. Our group’s core strength is design, development, synthesis, and structural characterization of smart functional polymers and self-assembly of organic molecules and nanostructures. Students in my research group are trained at the interfaces of organic chemistry, polymer chemistry and nanoscience, and gain expertise in the design and synthesis of small molecules, polymers and nano/colloidal particles.
