"Chemical Engineering allows you to manipulate matter in new and exciting ways, to be able to build something truly incredible that hadn’t been imagined before. By understanding how and why molecules assemble, flow, move and react together, it is possible to create, design and control a world of things."

Research Interests: macromolecular design and synthesis, targeted drug delivery for cancer, nanoscale assembly of synthetic biomaterials, electrostatic and directed materials assembly
