Personal profile

Research interests

Our main interest lies in supramolecular chemistry. We’re trying to understand how and why molecules interact with each other, and what are the rules that govern self-assembly in nature. That being said, we never run away from a challenging synthesis or a seemingly indecipherable spectrum. We believe that by answering these questions we will be able to produce organic materials with new properties that will ultimately lead to applications that will change everyday life.

Research Interests

  • Organic Materials
  • Dynamic Combinatorial Chemistry
  • Small molecule / DNA interactions
