2007-2008: Post-doctoral Associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Area of research: Impact of surface electronic states on electrochemical activity of solid oxide cathodes)
2006-2007: AvH Fellow at Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (Area of research: Effect of interfaces and periodicity on electrical properties of ferroelectric superlattices)
We are dedicated to understanding the effects of defects and microstructural features in functional oxides on their properties. Using continuum level computational and experimental approaches, we try to reveal the mechanisms by which defects and interfaces impact the physical properties and at what magnitude this occurs. Such knowledge is the key to design and fabricate artificial films and structures for specific engineering applications. Our groupís research covers:
Ferroelectric-semiconductor interfaces, resistive memory action of such systems.
Phase transitions in functional oxides and artificially grown multilayers/superlattices.
Effect of defects on thermodynamics and phase transitions of crystalline materials.
Growth of ferroelectric and multiferroic films using chemical precursor methods and their characterization.
Post-doc position available for study of electron transport processes across ultrathin ferroic layers (as of 13 Nov. 2018). Please contact me for further information and inquiry.
