Research Interests

Research in our group focuses on 3 areas: 1) the development of low temperature ( 500°C) topochemical synthetic strategies for design and construction of nonmolecular materials, 2) the control of nano- and meso-scale topological features utilizing porous templates, and 3) the fabrication and characterization of nanopeapod assemblies.

Our group is part of the Advanced Materials Research Institute (AMRI), a multidisciplinary materials institute that combines the interests of academic, government, and industrial scientists.
