Research

 
Postdoctoral Scholar
  • Devised ion-conducting polymeric materials and architectures for artificial proton pumps.
  • Analyzed of ionic band bending at polymer/electrolyte interfaces using impedance spectroscopy and modeling.
  • Performed finite element analysis modeling of fully ionic photovoltaics.
Graduate Student
  • Designed polymer nanoparticle morphologies with bicontinuous pathways for concurrent conduction. 
  • Analyzed transport using advanced scanning probe techniques, impedance spectroscopy, and network/percolation theory with computation. 
  • Conducted and modeled impedance spectroscopy to measure ionic transport and interfacial chemistry to control it, in hybrid organic/inorganic perovskites for photovoltaics and memristors
