- About me -
I am an experimental physicist currently working as physics lab manager for the department of Physics and Astronomy here at College of Charleston. I got an M.S. in physics from Western Illinois University, IL and a Ph.D.from Boston College, MA. My research interest is in materials science, especially focused on developing high efficiency thermoelectric materials, performing spectroscopic/microscopic characteroization and studying thermal/electronic/magnetic transport properties.
- Research -I have been involved in studying thermoelectric properties of the materials in a wide range of temperature 2 K to 1000K, however my research is more focused in investigating strongly correleted materials including narrow gap semiconductors (eg. FeSb2, CrSb2, FeSi), conventional Ce-based heavy fermion compounds (eg. CeAl3, CeCu6, CeB6) and moderately heavy fermion compounds (eg. YbAgCu4, YbCu4.5) which can potentially be used in cryogenic cooling applications . I also have interest in studying electron-phonon interaction and its role in thermoelectric performance of materials. Besides, I also do thermal analysis of the materials using effective medium approach (EMA) combined with Kapitza resistance. I have some interest on AC and DC magnetometry as well.
