Rider Group Research:

Welcome to the Rider Research Group Website

The Rider Research Group aspires to use engineered polymers to (i) create functional nanomaterials for energy technologies like fuel cells, sensors and catalytic devices and (ii) create robust and light-weight composites for aerospace. Some of the specific projects that are active are:

  1. Advanced Polymer Materials for Aerospace Composites
  2. Self-Assembled Polymers and Nanoparticles (NPs) for Electrocatalysis and Sensing 
  3. Layer-by-Layer (LbL) Polymer/Catalyst Coatings for Fuel Cell Electrodes
