Welcome to the Swihart Lab!

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials for diverse applications ranging from photovoltaics to nanomedicine. We aim to employ chemical engineering principles to understand the formation and processing of these nanomaterials, ultimately enabling their commercial production at practical scales. Of course, the most important product of our group is our students and alumni, who are going on to bigger and better things. We ultimately hope that our research efforts ultimately lead to technologies such as new low-cost solar cells and new methods for diagnosing and treating disease that serve to improve the human condition in some modest way.


Thank you for your interest in our research group. Please browse the accompanying pages to learn more. If you have questions, contact us at swihart@buffalo.edu.
