Research Interests

  1. We seek to synthesize, characterize, and, thereby, achieve a fundamental understanding of new polymer-based organic and hybrid materials comprising tailored architecture and functionality. Development of new synthetic methodologies, modification of existing synthetic routes, multidisciplinary approach to structure-property evaluation, and advanced characterization tools are the overriding factors to rational material design. The general research focus areas will include steroid-based biocompatible polymers, responsive materials composed of ionic polymer organogels, and mono or bimetallic inorganic organic hybrid materials.
