Research in the Meyer Group is a collaborative effort that involves faculty, graduate students and undergraduates. We focus on two major areas: 1) the use of sequence to control the polymer properties and 2) the development of polymeric materials that respond to electrical signals. For sequence control, we target applications in drug delivery and optoelectronics while our work in electroresponsive polymers is directed at creating materials that would be moldable interfaces or be parts of soft robotic mechanisms.
Research in the Meyer Group is a collaborative effort that involves faculty, graduate students and undergraduates. We actively seek collaborations with other research groups and work to address fundamental questions in polymer chemistry and materials science.
