Research Summary

I am interested in the physics, materials science, and applications of emerging complex materials, especially oxides and chalcogenides. Our synthetic capabilities range from bulk ceramic processing, single crystal growth, and thin film growth techniques with in situ structural and chemical characterization methods. My group also specializes in transport measurements (primarily electron transport) over a wide temperature range. Our application interest typically centers on emerging electronic, photonic and quantum device technologies, and energy conversion and production systems such as thermoelectric and photovoltaic energy conversion, and catalytic fuel production.
