I joined Kanatzidis research group in March 2013. My current research interests are heavy metal chalcogenides and chalcohalides; their synthesis and evaluation of properties for radiation detector applications. This includes exploratory synthesis to find new materials, their structural characterization and growth of large single crystals for physical property studies.
