Anti-Biofouling Surfaces

Originally from Montreal, I came to UCSB to examine the physicochemical properties of peptoid-polymer hybrids, a new class of materials co-developed by the Segalman group, with a greater goal towards surface engineering applications. Following my undergraduate studies in biochemistry at McGill University, I completed a PhD in chemistry under the joint supervision of professors Theo van de Ven and Adi Eisenberg, also at McGill. The research centered on the design, synthesis and self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers in solution, with an emphasis on biocompatible systems.
