My research currently has two focus areas. The first is the development and deterministic positioning of giant core/shell quantum dots for integration into photonic nanobeam cavities to achieve strong light-matter coupling for quantum applications. My second project involved the use of machine learning as a tool in nanomaterial synthesis. Understanding hidden mechanisms of nanomaterial synthesis will help design new environmentally friendly synthetic routes and realize ‘green’ precursors for these processes.
