Who We Are:  

We are an interdisciplinary research group at the UCF NanoScience Technology Center, University of Central Florida. The group is dedicated to develop novel nanomaterials for biomedical, environmental, energy and agricultural applications. Our research team consists of researchers with physics, materials science, chemistry, biotechnology and molecular biology & microbiology backgrounds.
What We Do

We are developing application-specific engineered nanomaterials. Design, synthesis and surface modification of nanomaterials are done routinely.  We perform systematic characterization of nanomaterials and develop synthesis protocols.  In our lab, we do preliminary evaluation of our nanomaterials towards demonstrating any specific application followed by re-optimization of synthesis protocols. In-depth studies to evaluate  performance of our materials are usually done in collaboration.

Students and post-docs receive extensive training during nanomaterial development process that involves design, synthesis, characterization, quality control, and batch-to-batch reproducibility. In every step, they learn something new about nanoscience and they are constantly challenged.

Our Goal:

To understand the power of nanoscience, develop nanomaterials with new/improved properties and transfer technology for the benefit of the society. Overall, we strive to build a solid foundation of knowledge in the area of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
