Research Interests

Polymer synthesis at surfaces and physical chemistry of polymers in solution. We initiate chain growth polymerizations from particle surfaces to prepare nanocomposites. These surface initiated polymerizations provide opportunity to control all degrees of structural complexity in a polymer brush. Our research efforts include the development of new methodologies in light scattering to be applied to light absorbing species and interacting polymeric systems. Study of hydrophobically associating hydrogels where the composition of hydrophobic and hydro¬philic regions controls drug uptake and release.
