Research

Our research uses principles of synthetic organic chemistry and physical organic chemistry to develop new methods and materials aimed at achieving improved organic electronic device performance.

We have three major goals that include:

          1) Developing new synthetic strategies and methods for constructing unique π-conjugated structures.

          2) Characterization of new electroactive organic materials.

          3) Achieving improvements in electronic device performance through materials design.
