Research Interests

  1. Electrochromic Polymers: polymers that change color as a function of adding or removing charge. Development of these materials is underway involving organic, analytical, and device fabrication. Design of polymers that allow various color transitions such as blue to colorless, red to colorless and green to colorless, without sacrificing polymer processability. Electrochromic solid-state fabric has been made for a host of applications. DNA Nanomaterials: white light emitting DNA nanofibers have been prepared via electrospinning and proper choice of donor and acceptor for Förster resonance energy transfer.
