We seek to engineer matter at the nano-micro scales using the strategies of self-assembly and directed assembly. Our interest is primarily in viscous or soft matter, which includes biomolecular and biomimetic structures. Moreover, we develop rules for the design of new classes of "smart" fluids and materials that could be useful in oil recovery, drug delivery, wound healing, and energy storage.
