Current research is focusing on (i) the creation of hyperthin membranes that are capable of separating CO2 from N2, (ii) the creation of molecular umbrella conjugates of drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier, and (iii) understanding the two-dimensional structure of models of biological membranes. All three projects employ synthetic organic and analytical chemistry methods.
