Welcome to the Davidson Research Group!
Our research is focused on designing, synthesizing, and guiding the assembly of soft polymeric materials to address pressing needs, particularly in health and the environment. We achieve this by working at the intersection of polymer synthesis, polymer characterization, polymer physics and self-assembly, and additive manufacturing.
Ariana will be joining our growing team of technical undergraduates working on a wide range of projects relating to our 3D printer!
Kitty will be completing her senior thesis work in the Davidson Lab on a project on LCE actuated origami in a collaboration with Professor Paulino in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department here at Princeton.
Ben will be rejoining the Davidson Lab again this year to continue working on several mechanical and electrical projects, mostly related to our lab's main 3D printer!
