Summary:

Our research involves the design and synthesis of novel hybrid inorganic-organic-biomolecule materials and studying, understanding, and precisely controlling their structures and properties. This research encompasses organic and inorganic synthesis, coordination chemistry, solid-state chemistry, biomolecule assembly, and nanoparticle synthesis and assembly.  We are particular motivated by applications related to the porosity of metal-organic framework materials (e.g. gas storage and separations) and the unique collective plasmonic properties of peptide-nanoparticle assemblies.
