Nanostructured materials and devices; Nanoscale carbons; Magnetism and magnetic materials; Magnetic recording; Heat transport; Pump-probe techniques.
My research is devoted to heat and electron transport in nanoscale devices, interfaces, materials, and composites, with the aim of improving dissipation and energy efficiency of electronic devices. I am also interested in spectroscopy and optical pump-probe techniques for the characterization of materials and magnetization dynamics near phase transitions. I have experience studying the electronic properties of amorphous semiconductors and novel nanostructured materials such as carbon nanotubes, semiconducting nanowires, and graphene. I have also worked on nanoscale magnetic field sensing devices and energy-assisted magnetic recording technologies.
