My work as a condensed matter physicist centers on the intersection of semiconductor physics, materials science and nanotechnology. My research addresses the questions concerning how fabrication conditions of semiconductor materials correlate to microstructural and optoelectronic properties at the nano- and microscale and how this knowledge can improve the performance of devices. In recent times, my research has focused more on the correlation between material properties and light-matter interactions at the nanoscale for applications in biosensors, large area electronics including photovoltaics, and bioenergy. 

Current Research:

  • Light matter interactions: nanophotonics, spectrum manipulation and plasmonics

  • Portable plasmonic sensors 

  • Oxides: photovoltaics and nano-optics

  • Semiconductor thin films, nanomaterials, nanostructures and devices  

  • Photovoltaics: light manipulation and architecture engineering

  • Hybrid Energy Systems: 

    • Agro-photovoltaics & Floatovoltaic Systems

    • Hybrid Biofuel-Solar Energy Generation​

  • Light manipulation for enhanced productivity in algal cultivation photobioreactors

  • Energy Autonomous Biomedical Devices

  • Silicon Carbide for Quantum Applications
