Research Interests

A theoretical chemist by training, I utilize the tools of computational simulation to investigate folding and self-assembling systems with an eye towards applications in solar cell technology, drug targeting, and the development of responsive nano-materials. I am particularly interested in understanding the interplay of entropy, energy, kinetics and environmental responsiveness within these systems.

In my current work, I am exploring the morphology and assembly of conjugated polymers.
