Research Interests

The research which I performed during my undergraduate career largely focused on the topic of semiconducting oxides, their defects, and controlling their interfacial properties. I look to continue along this line of work while at Stanford by continuing to focus on oxide interfaces, but with the added ability to grow and manipulate heterostructures with the aim of inducing novel electronic states which might lead to novel device functionality.
