The research in Dr. Batteas' group is organized around three main projects. These include: 1) nanoscale materials and devices, 2) nanotribology, and 3) biological surfaces and interfaces. The general theme of the work in his group is the development of custom engineered surfaces and interfaces. Much of this work involves the development of a fundamental (molecular level) understanding of the underlying chemistry and physics of the systems in question to afford rational approaches for improving current and developing new technologies.
