Background & Research Interest
My research group investigates the synthesis of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals. We are interested in understanding the chemistry that determines nanocrystal shape and stability. We also examine nanocrystal surface chemistry and ligand exchange processes. We are interested in understanding how the surface of a nanocrystal alters its properties and stability.
