Research Interests
The ability to control the assembly and destruction of nanoscale materials in response to specific biomolecular stimuli is expected to have a significant impact in targeted drug delivery and advanced sensor design. Our program takes a multidisciplinary approach to the development of novel, stimuli responsive supramolecular and nanoscale materials by combining synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry with biological molecules and polymers.

Primary Research Area
Organic Chemistry
Interdisciplinary interests
Bioorganic
