My work revolves around the study of one dimensional semiconducting nanostructures and heterostructures. The work spans synthetic efforts and the development of novel characterization techniques. We synthesize semiconducting interfaces to control the charge distribution and flow, for light emitting and light harvesting applications. Moreover, we are developing strategies of synthesis of novel two dimensional materials with chemical complexity outside of the reach of standard deposition methods. To characterize these structures we are developing electron-based hyperspectral-imaging techniques based on cathodoluminescence and electron energy loss spectroscopies to locally probe optical, plasmonic and electronic properties with unprecedented resolution.
