Research Description

Jennifer Dionne’s research develops new optical materials to visualize and control nanoscale processes. Her invention is a light-driven scheme for the separation of different forms of the same molecules, which she hopes to use to increase the efficacy and safety of pharmaceutical drugs as well as reduce the toxicity and environmental impact of chemicals used in agriculture.
