Welcome to the Peterson Group website! We study functional surfaces and interfaces in multilayered structures.


Additive manufacturing

  • Thermal modeling from FFF (bench scale) to BAAM (car scale)
  • On-line property prediction
  • Formulation/printing of novel materials
  • How reinforcement phases affect processing, structure, properties


  • Assembly condition-controlled growth factor release from polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs)
  • Fabrication of substrates with individually tailorable topography, chemistry, release
  • Role of water/humidity on polyelectrolyte structure, properties
