Research

I am currently an Elings Prize Fellow and a University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Ram Seshadri Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara as well as the Bruce S. Dunn Lab at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research interests include the synthesis, characterization, and functional testing of novel materials for electrochemical energy storage applications and heterogeneous catalysis. Characterization involves a library of techniques such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), synchrotron operando X-ray scattering and spectroscopy (pair distribution functions technique, X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy), and computer programming (Matlab, Python) for data processing and atomistic modeling. Additionally, I enjoy teaching and have taught middle school to graduate level students.
