Five overarching themes make up the core of the research within the Smart Materials group. These themes are interdisciplinary in nature and our academics excel in bringing together different expertise to solve problems.
Creation of novel materials with direct use in a wide range of applications.
Exploration of material properties; and development of novel analytical based methodologies for a wide range of applications.
Materials development and analysis in the fields of waste upcycling, biodegradation, and pollutant monitoring.
Application of nanotechnology and materials chemistry for the development of novel therapeutics.
Advanced Functional Materials for catalysis and energy applications.
