Professor of Bioengineering, University of Maryland

My research focuses on using biology’s materials, mechanisms and lessons to fabricate high-performance soft matter that is cheap, safe and sustainable. In particular, my group focuses on building structure/function using stimuli-responsive biological polymers (especially polysaccharides), enzymes (especially tyrosinase and transglutaminase) and redox-active phenolics.
