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