Our research focuses on the synthesis, characterization, engineering, and simulation of nanostructured materials and systems for photonics, energy, and chemical conversion applications.


We seek to understand how size, morphology, organization, and surface structure affect the physicochemical properties and behavior of materials over different length, time, and energy scales.


Current Research Interests:

•    III-nitride nanostructures, micro/nano-LEDs
•    Near-field optical microscopy & plasmonics
•    Bio-inspired photonics
•    Microplasmas (mat'l synthesis and spectroscopy)
•    Energy storage, magnetic, and catalytic materials
•    Light-matter interactions & Spectroscopy
