Research: 

My task in the Focus Group is developing and synthesizing new conjugated polymers and new methods for synthesizing conjugated co-polymers. Eventually, I would like to develop conjugated polymers that can be processed into organic photovoltaic devices straight from water or methanol to make the fabrication of these devices as Green as possible.
