About Us

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

  • Ice-Repellent surfaces

  • Solid-fouling resistant surfaces

  • Micro- and nanoparticle fabrication for drug delivery

  • Membrane separations and liquid-liquid extractions

  • Polymer Nanocomposites

  • Surface design for phase transition heat transfer enhancement
