Conner, Lavinia, Matt, Rotem, and Taylor join the group!

Graduate student Conner Chee and undergraduates Lavinia Falck, Matt Bittner, Rotem Benharush, and Taylor Tomlinson have all officially joined the group.

Conner will be working on our project on understanding the composition dependence of polyelectrolyte complexation. Lavinia will be working with Zi on computational modeling of mechanochemistry in block copolymers, Matt will be working with Paige on measuring diffusion in hydrogels, Rotem will be working with Julisa on rheology of complex coacervates, and Taylor will be working with Dr. Laaser on computational modeling of cocrystal formation in poly(oxacyclobutane)/water mixtures.

Welcome, everyone – we’re happy to have you!
