About Us
The ψ group is focused on using polymers to address some of the key challenges in the areas of renewable energy and environmental science. 

Particular areas of interest include:    
  • Superhydrophobic and Superoleophobic Surfaces 
  • Ice-Repellent surfaces
  • Biofouling resistant surfaces
  • Micro- and nanoparticle fabrication for drug delivery
  • Membrane separations and liquid-liquid extractions
  • Polymer Nanocomposites

We are a member of the Biointerfaces Institute, a collaborative multidisciplinary group of researchers. Our group is affiliated with the Materials Science and EngineeringMacromolecular Science and Engineering, and Chemical Engineering departments.  Our laboratory is located in the University of Michigan North Campus Research Complex.
