Electrical and Computer Engineering
Research focus is in electronic materials, including temperature dependent electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient, thermal conductivity, Hall effect, and current vs. voltage measurements for materials and devices. Areas of research have included single crystal diamond, thermoelectric materials, oxide nanowires, and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy. Experimental techniques include pulsed laser deposition, laser micromachining, cleanroom procedures, solid state reactions, powder processing, spark plasma sintering, and high temperature high pressure pressing/annealing.
