My research experience integrates chemistry, biomedical engineering, and material science engineering.
I explore structure-property relations of 2D microporous conjugated polymers for colorimetric sensing of
toxic gases, membrane separation, and controlled drug delivery. By incorporating and tailoring the
functionalities within the micropores of these polymers the absorption of gases, drugs and other small
molecules can be achieved. My research further explores the processing methods of these materials into
free-standing films, electrospun fibers, aerogel fabrication, and 3D printing of monoliths for these
