Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Bernard and Claudine Nist Endowed Fellow
CEI-related research interests: Energy efficient coatings, thermochromic materials, mechanical and interfacial reliability of thin film electrode materials.
Research in the Velian group focuses on the development of synthetic strategies to access new generations of molecular and heterogeneous inorganic catalysts and electronic materials, with the long-term goal of contributing fundamental understanding of the chemical processes occurring at the surface of semiconductor materials. While rooted in inorganic and organometallic chemistry, research in the Velian group interfaces with chemical engineering and materials science.
