Research Overview

Our research spans thermal-, electro-, and photo-chemistry in batch and flow, kinetics and optimization, automation, and machine learning to develop new methods that accelerate chemical discovery and development. We explore new automated reaction systems integrated with online analytics, robotics, optimization, and machine learning algorithms toward autonomous discovery.   In collaboration with our colleagues in the MIT consortium for Machine Learning for Chemical Discovery and Synthesis, we develop new algorithms for synthesis planning and process chemistry.

Our Culture and Values

We are a collaborative, inclusive, supportive, multidisciplinary and culturally diverse research group working on fundamental and applied topics at the interface of chemical engineering, chemistry, and materials science. We strive to create a positive and welcoming environment that encourages scientific integrity, creative problem solving, critical thinking, and open communication.  We collaborate within and outside the group to inspire and support each other, to learn from each other, and to address major research challenges. We recognize that our collective strength comes from the broad range of skills, talents, and perspectives of our diverse backgrounds and aspirations. We care about the mental and physical well-being of everyone in the group and emphasize laboratory safety.
