Personal profile

Research interests

My group and I are interested in electronic, optoelectronic, magnetic, and catalytic materials synthesis and characterization with emphasis on understanding synthesis-structure-property-performance relations. We are motivated by fundamental questions as well as applications such as sustainable solar-to-electric energy conversion using solar cells. We use both vapor phase deposition and synthesis techniques (e.g., physical vapor deposition, plasma synthesis etc.) as well as colloidal synthesis to produce nanostructured materials, coatings, and thin films. Recent, current and past projects include (1) Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite inspired materials for solar cells, light emitting devices, and quantum computing; (2) Superparamagnetic nickel and permalloy nanoparticles; (3) Pyrite iron disulfide (FeS2) for solar cells; (4) Transparent conducting oxide films (ZnO, ZnO:Al); (5) Plasma synthesis of nanoparticles; (6) Copper zinc tin sulfide and selenide (CZTS) solar cells; (7) II-VI quantum dots (CdSe, PbSe); (8) Plasma etching and deposition; (9) Photocatalysis with TiO2 nanostructures; and (10) Nanowire (ZnO, TiO2) synthesis and nanowire based dye sensitized solar cells.
