Research interests
Soft matter photonics and materials informatics:  We use soft matter building blocks to build nanoscale materials that create or manipulate light. Our research focuses on how self-assembly of biopolymers and synthetic polymers can guide the formation of novel optical materials.  Much of our work incorporates machine learning and data mining for materials study and design.
  • DNA-stabilized metal clusters
  • Block copolymer nanostructures
  • Biomimetic membranes
  • Machine learning and data mining for materials discovery
