Our research focuses on designing materials for new electronic, optical, and magnetic functionality using epitaxial layer by layer synthesis. This enables engineering the band gap, polarization, conductivity, and quantum confinement in semiconductors. Currently our research focuses on thermal spintronics (coupling heat flow with spin/magnetic functionality), as well as III-Nitride molecular beam epitaxy of nano-heterostructures, especially semiconductor nanowire hetereostructures.
