Welcome to the Self Lab

Research overview

Welcome to the Self Lab at Arizona State University! As part of the Biodesign Center for Sustainable Macromolecular Materials and Manufacturing (SM3), our research begins at the design level, drawing inspiration from natural materials and processes, to identify concepts that can impact today’s polymer materials and manufacturing landscape. Leveraging our experience in polymer science and engineering, we work to translate these innovative ideas into feasible materials solutions with advanced functions and performance for next-generation engineering technologies.

Ongoing projects and collaborations include, among others:

  • Development of recyclable polymer foams using sustainable processes
  • Investigation of stimuli-responsive surfactants for tailored emulsions
  • Development of novel strategies for multi-material 3D printing
  • Optimization of light-responsive membranes for water treatment
