ExpertiseThe research interests of Zvonimir Dogic and his group lie in elucidating rules that govern self-assembly of materials, with a particular emphasis being placed on the role the particle's shape and chirality play in these assembly processes. We strive to create very simple model systems in which precise control is possible over all the relevant parameters.
