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.
