Research

research overview

  • My research interests are focused on the design, synthesis, and development of new functional organic materials and polymers, especially those with ordered nanostructures based on liquid crystal starting materials, or those based on room-temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) building blocks. Some of the specific goals in my research program include the design of functional, nanostructured materials via monomer self-assembly; novel liquid crystal monomer and polymer design; understanding the physical organic chemistry and materials science of ordered, nanostructured systems; design of heterogeneous catalysts and molecular size-separation membranes using nanoporous polymers; and the development of new functional materials (e.g., membranes) based on RTILs.
