Thermal Sciences, Energy Conversion and Nanofabrication
My research is focused on direct energy conversion and storage. I have a combined experimental and computational approach to studying electrical, optical and thermal properties of nanostructured materials for applications in thin film photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, hybrid thermoelectric photovoltaic systems and paraffin based phase change materials for thermal energy storage.
