Welcome to the Crawford Group!


In the Functional Emergent Materials lab we seek to cultivate the synergy found in working across disciplines such as materials science, bioengineering, nanotechnology, chemistry and medicine, to address overarching environmental and human health sustainability challenges relevant to our 21st Century society. Specifically, the Crawford group develops soft functional materials that are designed for dynamic use at the biological and environmental interface. Research interests related to these efforts include: block copolymers, nanomaterials, interfacial interactions, soft matter synthesis and characterization, self-assembly, wearable sensors, and bionic materials.
