Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Lab

Levicky Group — The Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Group’s research focuses on quantitative characterization of biomolecular interactions, with technological connections to diagnostics for medical and fundamental biology applications. The group seeks to dissect the fundamental equilibrium and kinetic aspects of biomolecular reactions at surfaces and in solution, elucidate the role played by the molecular organization, and apply this understanding to advance bioanalytical technologies.

Flow Lab

Hartman Research Lab

The Hartman Research Laboratory investigates the kinetics of chemical reactions and the design of the reactors in which they take place. Catalysis and reaction engineering is at the heart of virtually every process or system in which a chemical transformation occurs.

Transportation Planning

Hybrid Nanomaterials Lab

Sahu Group — Our research investigates the transport phenomena in new and novel classes of nanostructured hybrid materials that have promise for optoelectronic and thermoelectric energy conversion. Our group has expertise in colloidal synthesis, advanced characterization, and device implementation of such materials.

montclare lab

Montclare Lab for Protein Engineering and Design

We focus on engineering macromolecules. We aim to predictably design or engineer artificial therapeutics, biocatalysts, scaffolds and cells.

Modestino Group

Multifunctional Material Systems Laboratory

Our research lies at the interface of multifunctional material development and electrochemical engineering. Electrochemical devices are ubiquitous to a broad range of energy conversion technologies and chemical processes.

Polymer Light Scattering and Light-Induced Crystallization Lab

Garetz Group — We investigate the ways that laser light can passively and actively interact with materials. We use depolarized light scattering to passively characterize the micron-scale grain structure of block copolymer materials, which influences their viscoelastic, adhesive, optical and electrical properties. We use lasers to actively induce the nucleation of supersaturated solutions, providing novel ways of controlling crystal size, morphology and polymorphism.
