Combinatorial Nanoscience group
We are a research group led by Dr. Emory Chan, Staff Scientist at the Molecular Foundry in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Our multi-disciplinary team investigates the chemical reaction networks that give rise to nanoscale materials as well as the photophysical networks that govern the optical properties of these complex architectures. To streamline the exploration of these large experimental spaces and accelerate discovery of new materials, we develop automated robotic workflows for high-throughput synthesis and characterization. We guide these robots using computational and machine learning models.
