Research Interests

Harness the breakdown/formation of length scale dependent material properties in multidimensional forms (1D,2D,3D). Broad interest in singular (magnetic, optical, electronic & thermal conductivity, etc.) and coupled (ferroelectrics, thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics, magnetooptics, etc.) material properties. Application of materials science practices to connect processing parameters to material microstructure and properties.
