Research interests

My group studies phase transformations of functional materials, focusing on applications in computing, energy storage and energy harvesting.

We specialize in time-resolved electron, X-ray and optical microscopy techniques to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the processes involved.

Our lab includes a dynamic transmission electron microscope, which can capture a series of high-resolution snapshot images of irreversible changes in nanostructured materials and devices.

We are working to develop better materials to realize frontier technology using unique and innovative characterization techniques.
