Research Summary

Our group addresses nano-scale structure and mobility in soft materials. Current projects include lithium ion batteries, proton exchange membrane fuel cells, protein aggregation in neurodegenerative disease, dispersion of nanoparticles using microemulsion techniques, drug delivery, lignocellulose structure and formation and the binding of peptides to inorganic surfaces.

Please refer to my research group website for more information.
