Research interests are carbon nanotubes, synthesis and characterization of polymer blends, interpenetrating polymer networks, dendritic polymers, and low-k dielectric thin films. Primary techniques used are chromatography, small angle neutron and x-ray scattering along with thermal and spectroscopic characterization and MALDI. Primary studies involve synthesis-morphology-property relationships.
