Research at Northwestern

I am investigating the synthesis, structure, and properties of chalcogenides and oxides. Materials that are disordered on the nanoscale are of particular interest. We are also pursuing in situ studies of locally ordered species at the onset of crystallinity in solutions and fluxes.

I joined Argonne in December 2010. My graduate work in the Seshadri group focused on spontaneous processing of magnetic composites and characterizing disordered crystalline materials using large-box reverse Monte Carlo fits to neutron and X-ray total scattering data.
