Principal Researcher
Broad research interests in polymer physics and physical chemistry of polymers. Stimuli-responsive polymers for advanced technologies (polymer sensors and actuators; plastic optical fibers; polymer light-emitting diodes; polymer photovoltaics). Phase behavior in polymer-small molecule and polymer-nanoparticle systems. Sorption and diffusivity of small molecules in polymers.
