Research

I joined the Kanatzidis Group as a post doctoral research fellow on February 2012. My project involves the synthesis and characterization of new chalcogenide and intermetallic compounds for possible energy conversion, topoligcal insulator, superconductivity, nonlinear optical and radiation detector applications.

My research in A.U.Th. was mainly focused on the structural characterization of multicomponent chalcogenides and of Magnesium based compounds using FTIR UV/VIS in combination with methods of Thermal Analysis, Scanning Electron Microscopy, and X-Ray Diffraction Analysis.
