Welcome to the Koleilat Research Group at Dalhousie University

Our Team, led by Prof. Ghada I. Koleilat, investigates the properties of nanomaterials to realize their full potential in next generation electronics. We are particularly interested in solution-processing techniques for their unparalleled potential in low cost, flexible, stretchable and large surface area applications. 


Our core objective is to establish a state-of-the-art laboratory for (1) carbon based energy converters and for (2) power and light interactive electronic textiles, or simply smart textiles. 


Our multidisciplinary work unites skills and expertise from different disciplines including but not limited to electrical, chemical, mechanical and materials science engineering as well as physics and chemistry. To that end, we want to attract a diverse and comprehensive team of highly motivated researchers.
