Research Interests

Application of fundamental colloid science and surface thermodynamic principles to biochemical and biophysical problems related to biology at material interfaces including protein adsorption, cellular adhesion, blood contact phenomenon, and the biocompatibility of artificial materials in vitro and in vivo. Identification of structure-reactivity relationships that connect chemistry, morphology, and energetics to water solvent properties at surfaces. Characterization and modification of surfaces for biomedical and biotechnological applications, especially toward development of novel devices and processes.
