The Alexander Research Team
Engineering and soft material design inspired by nature
Nature achieves feats of engineering while operating efficiently and sustainably with minimal resources. From fundamental understanding to materials design, the Alexander Research Team uses nature as inspiration to solve scientific problems related to toxin remediation and mechanics of biomaterials. Our primary research fields are chemical engineering, polymers, fibrous biomaterials, and gels.
Active Research Projects:
Decoding Dietary Fiber Assemblies
Multi-functional Materials for the Absorption of Metabolic Toxins
Creative Manufacturing for Environmental Remediation
Uniting Mechanics & Functionality in Soft Biomaterials
