About me


I am a Lecturer in Physics in the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences at Keele University, England. My research is devoted to computational study and design of materials for technological applications. My research interests include (i) two-dimensional materials and van der Waals heterostructures for flexible and portable applications, (ii) hybrid organic/inorganic materials for optoelectronic applications, (iii) transition metal oxide and nitride semiconductors for solar water splitting, and (iv) nanomaterials for spintronics.
