We are advancing the frontiers of energy and sustainability, biomolecular engineering, soft materials and advanced materials, and computational engineering.
Leveraging world-class facilities and research instrumentation, our faculty and students tackle cutting-edge experimental and computational research in four research areas. Learn more about our path-breaking work in a collaborative environment that fosters innovation.
Energy and Sustainability
Our pioneering biomolecular research investigates biological processes to answer fundamental scientific questions and to engineer new energy, chemical, food, and pharmaceutical products.
Soft Matter and Advanced Materials
We study of the process of how materials flow and deform to ensure chemical industry tasks can be completed quickly, efficiently, and with minimal material loss or process down-time.
Our department leverages scientific computing and the modeling of complex chemical and biomolecular systems with the goal of elucidating the underlying design principles to improve efficiencies.
