Areas of Interest

Research in the Guo group combines engineering and chemistry principles for the design, synthesis and characterization of functional polymer and polymer-based membrane materials with applications in the areas impacting both energy and the environment.

Topics of the group’s research span several fields, including development of new high performance polymeric membranes for gas separations, nanophase separated multiblock copolymers for polyelectrolyte membrane fuel cells, functional copolymers for water treatment/desalination, as well as fundamental studies on the structure-property relationship for polymer materials.

The laboratory is interdisciplinary, with interests in chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, and polymer science and engineering.
