Our Interests and Goals

The long-term goals of our ongoing projects include:

  • Studying the properties of aqueous-based, supramolecular nano-capsules to identify new and unusual physicochemical phenomena arising through compartmentalization
  • Studying the complexation of hosts and guests in aqueous solution to reveal details of the hydrophobic and Hofmeister effects
  • Studying the supramolecular properties of peptides and small proteins
