About Us

Functional nanostructures are the enabling basis for today’s and tomorrow’s nanotechnology. Our research group focuses on how to improve functional nanostructures in a wide array of applications, ranging from semiconductor nano-manufacturing to energy and clean water production. We combine research in polymer systems, block copolymer self-assembly, and inorganic materials growth inside polymers together with advanced characterizations technique such as TEM imaging, 3D characterization with TEM tomography, and X-ray scattering to understand and control the next generation of functional nanostructures.

Welcoming Olga

Olga Kleinerman has recently began her post-doctoral research in our group.

Her study is done in collaboration with Calgary University (Calgary, Canada) and involves direct imaging of Pickering emulsions.

We are excited to have her join team, and wish her good luck in her research.
