Research Interests

My research in hierarchical materials emphasizes multiscale materials design for novel properties. Researchers in my group design, prepare, characterize, and model new composite films and coatings with applications in sensors, antifouling coatings, and tissue scaffolds. In addition to new materials design, my group is also interested in new materials characterization methods, particularly scanning probe techniques.

This research is necessarily cross-disciplinary, so I welcome students with a range of backgrounds who are interested in broadening their experience. Please contact me after April 2021 if you are interested in joining my group as a graduate student for Winter 2022. (I am not accepting new graduate students before then.)
