Research Interests

Dr. Manish Kumar is an associate professor at the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering. His technical interests include studying and mimicking biological processes and materials at the molecular scale to describe biological phenomena and then develop materials and processes that bring the exquisite specificity and functionality of biological molecules and processes to engineering scales. He is currently focused on cell membrane components - lipids and membrane proteins - and ways to mimic their function in synthetic systems and environmental engineering applications.
