Research interests

Our group is interested in the way nanoparticles and molecules self-organise into functional architectures. We are currently introducing responsive elements into systems that allow them to respond to light, transmit signals and demonstrate adaptation.

Such systems offer exciting possibilities for the development of molecular machines, smart materials and molecular electronics.

In the current battle against climate change, chemists have an even greater responsibility to conduct chemistry with low environmental impact.
