Research Focus

I am interested in manipulating and probing the optical, electronic, and structural properties of nanoscale materials as well as using this precise control of materials and their properties to help researchers solve challenging nanoscale scientific problems in areas ranging from medicine and biology to chemistry, physics, engineering, and beyond. I have experience with nanofabrication, active plasmonics (gold+vanadium dioxide), optical spectroscopy, and using scanning probe microscopy (AFM/KPFM/EFM) to probe 2D material, organic semiconductor, and quantum dot field effect transistors.
