My research sits in the big, fun space between materials science, solid state physics, and renewable energy technologies. My current interests can be characterized as defect engineering of chalcogenide and oxy-chalcogenide semiconductors. We have a brand-new lab and some exciting equipment, please take a look at the slideshows. Ongoing and proposed topics of research include:

  1. Control of metastable electrical properties of chalcogenide semiconductors for optical neuromorphic computing
  2. Discovery of new complex chalcogenide (eg. II-IV-VI) materials for energy and information technologies
  3. Technique development for characterization of semiconductor interfaces and dielectric films, with focus on degradation mechanisms in photovoltaic devices
  4. Layered chalcogenide and oxy-chalcogenide materials for integrated 2D electronics
