Profile Summary

Current Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the research groups of Prof. T. Kuech (CBE) and Prof. L. Mawst (ECE)


Research Intersets:

Solid State Materials Synthesis and Characterization --> (Opto)Electronic/Photonic Materials and Devices -- Photovoltaics -- Nano-Structures and Low Dimensional Materials Formation -- 2D Layered Semiconductor Materials (Beyond Graphene)  -- Real Time In Situ Studies of Nano-Structures Formation


About my work:

Fabricating almost all electronic and optical devices – e.g., transistors, solar cells, light emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes, sensors and detectors – requires an essential step: Electronic Materials Synthesis. My work centers on developing new solid-state materials, the novel processes required to generate them, and techniques of atomic level characterization. That involves expanding the currently limited pallet of (opto-)electronic materials, researching on emerging low dimensional photonic/electronic materials, and exploring their potentials for device applications.
