Translational Prize Fellow, 2020-21
Translational Prize Topic: Structured nanomaterials for efficient removal of organic pollutants in water
My research involves developing 3D structured, multi-scale materials from nanomaterial building blocks, focusing on carbon nanomaterials. I use emulsion templating and other solution based methods to assemble solid, microscale supraparticles, which are made up of a porous network of nanoparticles.
