Research Interests
The goal of Prof. Romero’s research at UC San Diego will be to create polymeric materials with unique electrical, optical, and mechanical properties which can leveraged in applications ranging from additive manufacturing to energy harvesting and storage. Research in Prof. Romero’s group will aim to develop new synthetic tools that enable access to these unique polymers, which they will do using a variety of techniques, including electrochemistry, photochemistry, and organometallic catalysis.
