We are a diverse group of material scientists specializing in both computational and experimental studies. Our research spans nanomaterials, electronic and optoelectronic devices, water desalination, and renewable energy, where our team members have broad expertise and are able to work laterally across these topics. We foster a strong culture of collaboration where a constant feedback loop between theory and experiment facilitates novel discoveries and efficiency/performance breakthroughs. We engage with several government agencies and industrial partners to maximize the impact of our work and harvest the benefits of our discoveries for society. We maintain a strong relationship with our alumni and foster long term relationships between our members as they go on to further pursue academic or industry positions.
