research overview

  • Our group focuses on fundamental problems in condensed phase physical chemistry with applications to biology, energy and sustainability. In energy, we are exploring how strong interactions in nanoscale systems might enable new materials for solar energy harvesting. We are exploring how correlated electronic effects might change paradigms in catalysis for energy storage and how the hydrophobicity of graphene can be modulated by electronic doping, and how this in turn may lead to efficient materials for water purification. We also work with experimental collaborators in biophysics to understand how stress is distributed in DNA molecules under tension, and on novel phases and statistical mechanical theories for active and glassy systems.
