Self-Assembly of Soft Materials
The Srivastava Lab is based in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Our research focuses primarily on harnessing self-assembly as a tool for materials design. We are specifically interested in the role of electrostatic interactions, and our work spans from molecular design and synthesis to fabrication characterizations of nano-, micro- and macro-scale materials, with applications in consumer products (such as cosmetics, adhesive and coatings), biomedical and biochemical industries, construction materials and 3D printing.
We are building a multidisciplinary team of researchers. Currently, we are looking for graduate students to join our group.
Postdoctoral researchers: We do not have any active openings currently. However, please email Samanvaya with a copy of your CV and a statement of research interests if your research interests match with our group's work.
