Electronic materialsΒΆ

More specifically, my interest is in materials falling in the dielectric - semiconductor continuum, including wide bandgap semiconductors, semiconductor oxides, and transparent conducting oxides.

As a natural extension of my interest in growth, a focus of my research has been on the connection between synthesis, microstructure, and electronic properties. Some examples include the design of materials with a controlled distribution of dopants, or more recently, my recent project focused on the interfacial properties of gallium oxide.

My interest in this area has lead to my being involved in PowerAmerica, one of the institutes of the National Manufacturing Initiative, and the Power Electronics Industry Collaborative. Part of PEIC’s activities includes an analysis on the supply chain for advanced power electronics. I am also active in the Electronic Materials Conference, as member of their scientific committee.

Another area or current interest is on beyond CMOS approaches and in particular on neuromorphic computing. One of the fascinating aspects for me on this area is the strong coupling between materials, architectures, and computing.
