ABSTRACT: We carry out research on developing materials – such as perovskites, quantum dots, and nanostructured metals – that we use in making enhanced-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, as well as on electrocatalysts made using these emerging materials systems. I will update on progress in the modeling, synthesis, characterization, and performance of these materials and devices.
