research overview

  • The Responsive and Programmable (R+PM) Group is generally interested in realizing functional utility in soft materials. Our research is highly interdisciplinary, bridging materials chemistry, polymer science, mechanics, optics, and applied physics. Current research activities are broadly focused on directing the self-assembly of liquid crystalline polymeric materials to realize shape transformation or optical reconfiguration.
