Ho Fung (Edmund) Cheng
Faculty Mentor: Chad Mirkin
Ho Fung Cheng (Edmund) received his undergraduate and master’s degrees in chemistry from University of Oxford in the UK. In his research, he seeks to understand how the architecture of individual building blocks affects the outcome of an assembly. To do so, he designed and synthesized multivalent molecule-DNA hybrids that can be configured into different supramolecular architectures. This research can provide lessons on how to target stimuli-responsive nanomaterials with new properties.
