Research Description: Polymeric Ionic Liquids

I am studying polymeric ionic liquids with strongly paramagnetic counter ions for diverse applications from actuation, to self assembly, to MRI contrast and more.


I grew up in Macon, Georgia and Graduated from Georgia Tech in 2016. While at Georgia Tech I studied the effects of processing methods on device performance in electrochromic polymer devices as a member of John Reynolds' research group. I also interned as a materials specialist doing product development for a building products company Evermark-LNL. For two years after graduation I worked as a packaging engineer at Texas instruments focusing on wafer level chip scale packaging and on high pincount wirebond devices.
