Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Our group uses multi-scale simulations and statistical mechanics to study soft matter, such as polymers and liquid crystals. We are interested in how chemical structures and compositions, together with processing conditions, can affect phase behaviors, assembly, and material properties. The physical understanding of material behaviors at different length and time scales helps us navigate the vast design parameter space for high-performance materials.
