We are working to facilitate nanoscale control by applying the fundamentals of block copolymer phase separation and polymer dynamics. Advanced atomistic and coarse-grained simulation methods are used to understand and control ordered soft matter systems. We are currently studying the incorporation of waste plastic into asphalt, the development of new and improved thermoset shape memory polymers, the ordering of precision bottlebrush polymers, the organization of nanoparticles with block polymer ligands, and hydrogels for drug delivery.
