Our group’s research studies the fundamental intermolecular forces that control interfacial structure and reactivity. We examine systems that are both fundamentally intriguing and relevant to the current needs of our technology driven society. One area of interest is the micro-structure of solvent molecules at textured polymeric surfaces and the correlation to a slip/no-slip hydrodynamic boundary condition at these interfaces. Additional interests include the chemistry of thin aqueous films relevant to environmental and atmospheric chemistry, and examining the intriguing surface structures found at ionic liquid interfaces. Common analysis techniques include surface infrared spectroscopies, Raman spectroscopy, ellipsometry, electrochemistry, tensiometry, and probe microscopy.
