Research Overview: Cherie investigates the chemical and physical properties of molecular, supramolecular, and nanostructured materials and assemblies and their applications in electronic, optoelectronic, optical, and sensing devices. Her aim is to understand charge and excitonic transport and interactions and to use these insights to guide the design of molecular and nanostructured devices. Cherie uses chemistry's flexibility to tailor the properties of novel devices, and she employs spatially and temporally resolved spectroscopies and electrical techniques to characterize molecular and nanostructured materials and operating devices.
