Research Interests

  • High pressure temperature behavior (EOS, phase diagram) of metals, alloys and molecular solids I use diamond anvil cells are used to generate pressure and micro-Raman spectroscopy and synchrotron x-ray diffraction and spectroscopy for in-situ diagnostic.
  • Development of high temperature techniques for diamond anvil cells.
