We use the tools of synthetic and supramolecular chemistry to address fundamental challenges in the assembly and integration of nanostructured materials.
We are part of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University. For more information about undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral research positions in the group, please see the “Join Us” section of the web page.
