"My research focus is on integrating theory and experiment to the design, synthesis, and characterization of semiconductor heterostructures with programmable light harvesting and charge transfer for photocatalysis."
"My research focuses on the fundamental photophysics of multi-chromophore systems attained using coordination-driven self-assembly, focusing on transition metal chromophores as structural elements of the assembly. By using these supramolecular metallocycles and cages, we can manipulate photophysical properties by the introduction of multiple, communicative excited states as well as changing both radiative and non-radiative rate constants."
"My research is on the functional characterization of lipids during apoptosis. I am particularly interested in how lipid droplet and its lipid components, such as triacylglycerols, are involved in this process."
"My research in Prof. Eva Zurek’s group mainly focuses on predicting the structures of materials at high pressures using the open-source evolutionary algorithm XTALOPT coupled with density functional theory (DFT) calculations. My interests include superconductors, photovoltaic materials, as well as compounds of geologic relevance."
"My research focuses on the synthesis and reactivity of novel organometallic and inorganic compounds with manganese metal centers."
"Understanding the self-assembly of surfactants on the surface of single wall carbon nanotubes using an interfacial sensitive technique Sum frequency generation (SFG), by studying the effects of the nanotube’s diameter, surfactant concentration (SDS) and the counterions (Na+, Ca+2)."
"My research revolves around exploring the host-guest chemistry of supramolecular coordination compounds."
"My research goals include studying the mechanism and rationally design an inhibitor for an enzyme that confers pathogenicity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis."
