The objective of the Functional Materials & Membranes (FunMem) group is to develop advanced functional materials and membranes with tailored properties taking advantage of the flexibility of playing with polymer chemistry and nanomaterials. The main focus of our group is on four distinct and interdisciplinary areas: (1) polymer synthesis and new materials for energy storage; (2) nanoporous and functional membranes for water purification and separation; (3) functional nanomaterials for environment and catalysis; and (4) soft & responsive materials for biochemical and biocatalysis. We are interested in making a unique combination of nanomaterials with functional polymers to fabricate advanced materials and tuneable membranes with the idea that ultimately define the surface properties to control the permeation of liquid, tuning of pore sizes, and functionalization to achieve antifouling, antibacterial, and catalytic properties.
