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.
