The overall theme of our research program is fundamental studies of the vapor phase synthesis of advanced materials.

In this context, we pursue both experimental and modeling studies ranging from molecular to reactor and device scales, with particular emphasis on the synthesis and functionalization of nanoparticles.

Research Topics
• Synthesis, functionalization, and application of nanoparticles
• Particle nucleation and growth
• Chemical kinetics
• Chemical vapor deposition
• Reactor modeling
• Computational chemistry
