Our research interests are in the fields of catalysis, polymer chemistry, and materials science. A major focus of our research program is the design of photoredox catalysts for the application in organocatalyzed atom transfer radical polymerization (O-ATRP) and more recently small molecule synthesis. We are also interested in applications of self-assembled block copolymer nanostructures as photonic crystals.
