My research focuses on the synthesis and chemical processing of novel materials, atomistic understanding of solid state interfaces, and their applications in microelectronics, optoelectronics, solar cells, batteries, and other energy related applications.  Specifically, my research focuses on developing novel atomic layer controlled thermal, radical, and plasma enhanced deposition techniques to synthesize compositionally controlled conformal coating, either on a planar surface such as a wide band gap semiconductor or selectively over complex 3-D surface topography, such as in a 3-D micro-battery or fuel cells.  My group has also developed various solution based synthetic processes to synthesize metal and metal oxide nanostructures in reduced dimensionality and achieved outstanding electrical and optical properties.  My group continues to advance the understanding of highly selective plasma etching processes to realize universal and predictive model for patterning complex oxides at the nano-scale.  My research group also tackled the characterization of individual complex metal oxide nano-structure to understand the origin of their improved electrical, optical, chemical, thermal, and energy storage properties.
