Education

An undergraduate student of chemistry and physics at Portland State University, I expect to graduate in June, 2017.

Research interests

My general interest is in the fundamental relationship between material structure and properties, that is to say, materials science and engineering. In particular, I am interested in experimental design, synthesis, and characterization of inorganic, organometallic, and bio-inspired materials, for energy conversion and storage applications.

Specific topics of interest include nanostructure and nanoscale materials, intercalation compounds, metal-organic frameworks, solid electrolytes, radio-voltaic materials, energy materials in aerospace applications, multi-functional materials. My current research is focused on metal hexacyanometallates for energy storage and photo-assisted water oxidation catalysis.
