Supramolecular Approaches to Semiconducting Devices

Welcome to our research group!

We are a family of scientists striving for innovation by expressing creativity in our work. We design, synthesize, and study novel organic molecules that possess unique structural and functional properties. Our goals are the following:

  1. identify unique building blocks for functional materials
  2. examine behavior of those building blocks on a molecular and macromolecular level
  3. and ultimately have fun doing what we love

Our research allows us to use tools from all areas of science including analytical, computational, and materials chemistry. In addition, we get to enjoy collaborating with a number of theoreticians and other experimentalists.
