Research Interests

Topics: In-situ optical diagnostic methods for nanostructures, formation and growth mechanisms of nanostructures, inverse problems in heat transfer

Why 2D materials: Working on my M.S. thesis, I observed that different morphological characteristics of soot aggregates yield different physical properties. This aroused my interest on the relation between morphology and physical properties of nanostructures which might be utilized in evaluating their functionality for specific applications. Considering that 2D materials have enhanced physical properties attributed to their structural characteristics, I am interested in developing optical diagnostics for 2D materials. Accordingly, I am excited to learn about the key structural characteristics affecting their functionality for various applications.
