Research Interests:

My research is focused on using x-ray techniques like ARPES and RSXS to study the electronic properties of quantum transport materials, in particular materials that are relevant to nanoelectronics and energy storage needs, like topological insulators, graphene, graphite intercalation compounds and self-assembled nanowires and nanoparticles.
