Research Interests

​My research focuses on the chemistry and engineering of metal halide perovskites – semiconductor materials used for a wide range of optoelectronic applications like solar cells, LEDs, photodetectors, lasers, etc. I work on synthesis and studying the fundamental properties of perovskite single crystals, as well as translating these properties into device applications.
