Jeffrey Gopez

Jeffrey received his BS in Chemical Engineering in 2010 from the University of California, at Riverside. Jeffrey began his doctoral studies in the fall of the same year at UCSB.


Jeffrey is interested in designing and synthesizing various copolyelectrolytes. Copolyelectrolytes can be used in a variety of applications, but their use in the formation of hydrogels is of primary interest. Many of the properties of hydrogels formed from copolyelctrolytes can be tuned by using different polymers with subtle composition changes.
