In our group, we are interested in understanding the interplay between information, structure, and function in nano and microscale systems. 
Our research interests include:


in nano and microsystems

Reversible and controlled



1-D to 3-D folding

in the nanoscale

Chemistry in



Multi-componental organic and inorganic nanoparticles

Information theory in micro and nanoscale systems

In our lab we employ a variety of synthesis and fabrication techniques including lithography, electrohydrodynamic co-jetting, and deposition methods.  We make use an array of microscopy and spectroscopy techniques for characterization and manipulation of these systems, and utilize computational and theoretical tools for modeling, analysis, and understanding their characteristics.
