Research Interests

Biological polymers; self-assembly in solution and interfaces

Current Research

At the intersection of materials science and biotechnology, we exploit various forms of self-assembly towards achieving desirable properties. We have largely focused our attention on biopolymer systems composed of nucleic acids, proteins, or polypeptides, to benefit from their precise and tunable interactions.

Honors and Distinctions:

National Science Foundation CAREER Award

Armstrong Fund for Science Award
