Research Interests

My research interests focus on the interface between different materials on the nanoscale, particularly polymers. These interfaces can be exploited and tuned to enable self-assembly, but also can be a source of mechanical weakness. The focus of my research program is on fundamental phenomenon, but in the context to improve the mechanical stability of nanostructures, moisture resistance of adhesives, performance of battery electrodes, and sensitivity of sensors for energy and human health applications.
