Dr. Brusso's research focuses on understanding and, ultimately, controlling the self-assembly of complex p-conjugated molecular architectures with tailored functionalities. The two main areas of research are: i) the design and synthesis of liquid crystalline radicals (LCR) and ii) the development of conjugated macromolecules.
