Our research program is focused on modeling the atomic features and molecular phenomena that govern catalysis and materials processing.
Our research group's goal is to characterize the transition states of important catalytic reactions and to develop an improved understanding of how to design efficient & selective thermal and photochemically driven catalysts
Our research program is concerned with the synthesis, properties and applications of metal complexes with polymeric ligands. Along with fundamental studies in polymer synthesis and properties, we are also exploring uses for these materials in medicine, biotechnology, and photonics. Of particular interest are biocompatible and degradable polymers for drug delivery and other biomedical materials, optical imaging and oxygen sensing, and sustainable design.
