My research focuses on the design and implementation of techniques for the study of gas-solid reactions driven by electron and ion beams. I have particular interest in the characterization of carbon, silicon and wide bandgap semiconductor materials using pulsed ion beams, in situ electron microscopy, cathodoluminescence, photoluminescence, Raman and x-ray spectroscopy.
