Welcome to The Lipomi Research Group in the Department of NanoEngineering at the University of California, San Diego. We are a team of scientists and engineers interested in the overlap between three areas: energy, biomimetic materials and devices, and green chemistry and nanomanufacturing. We are interested in fundamental and applied studies that relate molecular and nanoscale structure to function, and in devices that incorporate new physical effects to solve real-world problems. What motivates us is the potential of new materials and new forms of old materials to produce and save energy, and to improve human well-being.
Our defining mission and strength, however, is our tireless support of our students and postdocs, most of whom have won prestigious awards, gone on to do postdoctoral research in top-five institutions, commercialize their own inventions, and work in several of the most groundbreaking companies on Earth. Thanks for visiting our site.
