We are a group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of New Hampshire tucked between the mountains and the sea.

We seek to use biologically derived and bioinspired monomers to create and control properties of soft materials. Read more.

Our group firmly believes in creating and maintaining a culture of inclusion, equity, and diversity. We are committed to continually educating and improving ourselves to better dismantle systemic racism and other barriers that pervade not only in science but in all institutions. Read our statement. The recent revelations in our own department have only strengthened our resolve to make a difference and undo the damage caused.

If you are an undergraduate student,  graduate student, or postdoctoral researcher who is interested in working at the interface of chemistry, biology, and material science please reach out to us.
