The Jayaraman research group is lead by Prof. Arthi Jayaraman, Associate Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at University of Delaware. Our research interests lie in understanding molecular-level phenomena governing complex biological processes and material science problems using theoretical and simulation techniques.

Current Research Focus

Group Research

  • Functionalized Nanoparticles and Polymer Nanocomposites
  • Conjugated Polymer Materials for Organic Photovoltaics
  • Biomaterials for Gene and Drug Delivery
