We are part of the IBS Center for Soft and Living matter, directed by Steve Granick. The goal of this laboratory is to understand fundamental materials processes and to develop new ones. We specialize in the field of soft materials. The researchers in this group come from varied scientific disciplines, including chemistry, physics, materials science, and chemical engineering. This diversity of background and perspective helps to maintain a particularly stimulating environment. Students gain broad training in a variety of subjects and have many options of what to do after graduation. Our work is ambitious. We aim to contribute to a broad agenda of problems in society - in areas from energy to biology.
