Educational Qualifications

Postdoctoral Researcher, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center (2004-2005)
Ph.D., Physical Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley (2004)
A.B., Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering, Princeton University (1999)

Focus

Chemical synthesis and assembly of nanostructured electronic and electrochemical materials, processing-structure-property relationships, energy and electronic devices.

Research

Our research synthesizes the fundamental chemistry of colloidal nanocrystals, the development of methods for their integration into novel nanomaterials and the systematic investigation of their properties and applications. We are a collaborative team of chemists, materials scientists, and engineers motivated by the challenges of next-generation electronic devices and energy technologies.
