Our Philosophy

The rational design of functional materials is typically a complicated process, as the materials space is vast and unexplored. Data-driven approaches via Machine Learning and high-throughput automated experiments provide new knobs to navigate these complex parameter spaces, accelerating materials discovery. 

In our lab, we aspire to understand fundamental heat and charge transport from the nanoscale to the bulk, building from nanowires, two-dimensional materials, hybrid and bulk materials. In particular, we are interested in interactions between electrons, phonons and photons in nanoscale materials and how these can be manipulated to design and create novel functional devices, specifically for renewable energy technologies such as thermoelectrics, PV and thermo-photovoltaics.

We are uniquely positioned to combine the data-driven methodology with deep domain expertise towards materials-by-design.
