Nanocrystal synthesis, kinetics, particle formation, surface chemistry, and synchrotron techniques (XAFS and SAXS)
SEM/EDX, AFM, p-XRD, DSC, Fluorometer, CD, DLS/Zetasizer, and N2 glove box
Background & Research Interest
My group is investigating the application of plasmonic nanocrystals as environmental sensors.
My PhD was studying particle formation mechanisms, and my postdoc was researching metal oxide and ceramic nanocrystal synthesis and application.
