Dr. Hollingsworth's research interests include the synthesis and characterization of multifunctional hybrid particles, as well as the study of complex fluids. In particular, his group aims to develop low-cost nanotechnology that may find use in biomedical and environmental applications. Techniques such as dynamic light scattering, small-angle x-ray scattering, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy play a major role in the characterization of these materials.
