Research interests in the group involve investigations of the properties of various emerging applications-inspired materials, particularly focusing on materials for alternative energy applications. The group implements both experimental and computational techniques to understand the physical and chemical properties of these materials. Each method has its own advantage. While computational methods provide an atomic-level understanding of properties that sometimes cannot be probed experimentally, experiments often allow for more deviation from ideal models, enabling studies of more complicated scenarios.
Current Projects:Current studies include hydrogen storage in nanostructures and organic photovoltaic materials.
