My research focuses on the electrochemical synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials to further understand the importance of structural influences on both surface and bulk properties, such as ion and electron transport. I am also interested in utilizing spectroscopic techniques to study the chemical reactivity and composition of these materials. Nanomaterials have important uses in energy storage systems, but I am also interested in branching out to explore other applications.
