We work on the design, synthesis, and characterization of de novo designed peptides that serve as building blocks for functional biomaterials. We also seek to understand the hierarchical self-assembly of complex systems involving artificial proteins, block copolymers, and nanoparticles. In addition, we develop new functional materials at the molecular level that exhibit novel electronic, photonic, and biological properties.
The Masters of engineering 3HM commercialization team has been awarded Best Capstone Presentation Award at UC Berkeley Fung Institute's Capstone Showcase. Congratulations Erik, Justin, Mackenzie, Sam, Yikai, & Zach! (5/3/2017)
