Background & Research Interest
I have two main research interests at the interface of chemistry, physics and material science. It primarily focuses on using Raman spectroscopy as an analytical tool to characterize both materials and physical processes. Current projects focus on the probing the influence of composition on the structure of glassy materials while the other involves probing the dynamics of individual molecules using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).
