We study soft materials, including polymers, liquid crystals, colloids, and gels for energy and biomedical applications. We aim to tell stories about materials in our world based in a strong fundamental understanding and advanced characterization techniques.


We are located in Drexel University’s Bossone Enterprise Research Center in Philadelphia, PA. This advanced research facility houses the Materials Characterization Core, a center for materials characterization that provides access to advanced materials characterization tools.
