At Yousefi Lab for Self-assembled Nanomaterials, we develop advanced multifunctional materials for addressing some of the most pressing global challenges such as water quality, sustainable energy, and accessible healthcare. Our goal is to achieve the best performance by self-assembling nanomaterials at macro, micro, and nanoscales to obtain rationally designed, smart, and multifunctional structures. In doing so, we get inspiration by nature which has perfected the art of self-assembly through millions of years of evolution. Our research is at the intersection of chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, and biological sciences. Click below to explore our three main research themes.
