Research Interests
Materials Chemistry, Solid State Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry — Low-dimensional nanoscopic building blocks are used to assemble complex architectures with novel chemical and physical properties.

Semiconductor nanowires have witnessed an explosion of interest in the past two decades due to advances in synthesis and the unique thermal, optoelectronic, chemical, and physical properties of these materials. The potential applications of single-crystalline nanowires are truly impressive, including computational nanotechnology, telecommunications, spectroscopic sensing, renewable energy, and the biological sciences. This breadth of application naturally requires a multidisciplinary community, including but not limited to materials scientists, chemists, engineers, physicists, and microbiologists, all converging to solve challenging problems at nanometer length scales.
