Perovskites have emerged as a promising class of photovoltaic materials. I am currently working on developing new methods to control the growth rate of perovskite films by exploring alternative precursors and synthetic strategies.

Solar energy technology combines materials tailored to exploit the physics at their junctions which enable light energy collection, and extraction as electricity. A promising class of candidate materials is the layered semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs).

Active research is being pursued to develop a new technology that can replace Li ion batteries. One promising alternative is the lithium-sulfur battery, which can theoretically store five times more energy at a much lower cost.

Semiconductor quantum dots have gained considerable interest in photovoltaic applications due to their size-tunable optoelectronic properties and solution-processability. I focus on indium phosphide quantum dots (InP QDs), a less toxic alternative to well-developed materials containing cadmium.
