Polymer Innovation for Advanced Organic Electronics (PI-AOE) at Purdue University

Mei Group at Purdue University

We are a dynamic and innovative research group, led by Prof. Jianguo Mei in the Department of Chemistry at Purdue University. Our group focuses on cutting-edge research in organic synthesis, polymer chemistry, measurement science, and printed electronics. Our pursuit of excellence is matched by our commitment to providing an open, supportive, and stimulating environment for students to develop their careers. As a team, we believe in fostering an inclusive community where creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking thrive. If you are interested in joining us, please do not hesitate to reach out to the PI or any of our group members for further information.

Welcome to Mei Group!
