Education Background
  • Doctoral degree| Northwestern University| Ph. D. Chemistry | 2010
  • Doctoral degree| University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)| Chemistry| 2008
  • Bachelor’s Degree| Texas A&M Universtity Corpus Christi|  Science Chemistry| 2005
Research Interests
  • 1) development of functional information of rich structural motifs and investigation of their performance characteristics in solution as molecular entities
  • 3) incorporation of these macromolecular components into device setting.
  • Focus is on the role of long-range non-covalent interactions and electrostatics in synthetic macromolecules and how these forces affect the thermodynamic equilibrium and kinetics of self-assembly in solution, on surfaces, and at the solvent-nanoparticle interface.  
  •  2) carry over of successful systems into the macromolecular world of polymer scaffolds, colloids, and nanoparticulates,
  •  focused on systems chemistry with emphasis in surface science/surface chemistry and molecular recognition and self-assembly.
