We are broadly interested in processing-structure-property relationships in multicomponent/multilayered systems. We are working on a number of projects in the following areas:

  1. Polyelectrolyte multilayers for controlled release of biologically relevant molecules
  2. Polyelectrolyte multilayers with tailorable surface chemistry and morphology
  3. Thermal analysis of polyelectrolytes, polyelectrolyte multilayers, and polyelectrolyte complexes
  4. Processing-structure property relationships in fused deposition modeling (3D printing) of polymers and polymer composites
  5. Modeling of fused deposition modeling
  6. Self-healing polymer coatings and composites
