Hello all, I'm a PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering and received my B.S. degree in physics from UIUC in 2023. I'm mainly interested in discovering innovative material properties from conventional compounds, for its possible application in high-performance optoelectronic devices. At the same time I'm also open for any discussion beyond the spectrum of device physics, so please feel free to reach me out!
As a new lab, we have multiple openings for Ph.D. students. We welcome highly motivated students with a passion for tackling challenging questions to make a real impact in the field of semiconductor devices, materials, and integrated platforms.
