Research Interests

Research in my group focuses on organic and hybrid materials for electronic and optoelectronic devices including, for example, light-emitting diodes, solar cells, memory cells, and transistors. I aim to develop an understanding of how the performance of organic and hybrid devices depends on the underlying electronic, electrochemical, and optoelectronic properties of such materials. I am particularly interested in the use of ionic carriers and electrochemical doping in conjugated organic materials to explore a range of novel device structures. Research in my lab is highly interdisciplinary and incorporates concepts and experimental techniques from synthetic chemistry to solid-state physics and electrical engineering. My long-range research goal is to bring fundamental understanding to the physical processes that determine the optical and electrical properties of hybrid systems in order to enable new classes of solution-processed semiconductor applications.
