Research Fields:

Current research interests are centred on the materials science of functional materials and nanostructures. Our goal is to enhance functional properties. We grow them using self-assembling, and assisted self-assembling from chemical or physical deposition methods controlled through kinetics and thermodynamics. The systems we study include superconductors, magnetic materials, semiconductors, and carbon films and nanomaterials.
