The Polymers, Surfaces, and Interfaces (PSI, 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
Solid-fouling resistant surfaces
Micro- and nanoparticle fabrication for drug delivery
Membrane separations and liquid-liquid extractions
Surface design for phase transition heat transfer enhancement
We are a member of the Biointerfaces Institute, a collaborative multidisciplinary group of researchers. Our group is affiliated with the Materials Science and Engineering, Macromolecular Science and Engineering, and Chemical Engineering departments. Our laboratory is located in the University of Michigan North Campus Research Complex.
