Research Interests
Materials science and engineering of advanced nanocomposite and supramolecular materials that lend themselves to applications such as batteries, superconductivity, solid-sate optics and magnetics . Using modern design techniques, materials can now being designed for specific applications because of unique structure-property-processing relationships. Novel structure types allow electronic, magnetic and optical properties of materials to be tailored to specific and often multipurpose applications. Methods of computational chemistry and cheminformatics are of particular interest for how they can be used to facilitate the simulation of these materials and affect their application
