Research and Professional Interests

Application of Ring Opening Metathesis Polymermization to Polymer Battery Electrolytes and other membranes

Use of macro and microphase separation techniques in energy related materials

Statics and kinetics of phase separation in multi-component polymer blends both in bulk and as thin films

Physical characterization technique include:

  • light scattering
  • optical and atomic force microscopy
  • neutron scattering
  • Monte Carlo techniques

Use of metathesis, anionic, and controlled radical synthetic techniques to produce new materials for macro and microphase separation applications

Polymer/structure relationships studied via spin-lattice relaxation measurements of local segmental dynamics in polymers

Promoting the teaching and learning of research in an undergraduate setting via

  • incorporation of research activities in traditional courses
  • development of Internet resources for undergraduate research
  • an active and externally funded local undergraduate research program

Incorporation of information technology in lecture and laboratory settings
