My research interests encompass the structure-process-property relationships by nano- and composite materials, with a passion for creating new generation of innovative nanomaterials and composite materials for sustainable and scalable energy technologies. Specifically, I am driven to investigate the area of transition metal oxide and their unique electrochromic properties for smart glass and flexible display technologies. The materials currently under investigation are reaeearth elements doped metal oxide nanomaterials.
