Research summary

My research goal is the discovery of novel materials to support clean energy technology. We use theory and simulation to develop structure-property relationships in the solid state. Our current interests include dynamic disorder in hybrid perovskite solar cells, phonon engineering for thermoelectric devices, and polymorph control to enable switchable functionality.
