Welcome to the LITE

Laboratory for Integrated Technology Ecologies


The LITE seeks to protect the fundamental notion that technological solutions can do more good than harm. To do this, we (1) incorporate environmental objectives to the design of novel chemicals and materials and (2) design novel materials to surmount critical challenges facing the environment.
