Research Expertise: Soft Materials | Polymer Films

The vision of Daeyeon and the Soft Nanomaterials Lab is to develop deep understanding of the interactions between soft materials (e.g., polymers, colloids and biologicals, etc.) near or at interfaces. His group seeks to extend the obtained knowledge to enable the assembly of nano-/micro-scale materials into macroscopic structures that have designed properties and functionality. The major research efforts in the lab include understanding the behavior of Janus particles at fluid interfaces, understanding and improving the assembly and mechanical properties of nanoparticle films, the generation of hierarchical structures using emulsions and bubbles as templates, and development of catalytic systems for biomass conversion.
