There are many opportunities to be a member of this research group. Please see on the right and bottom for more information. Students performed virtually all the preparations, measurements and calculations realized in my group. We have an interdisciplinary environment with graduate students from Chemistry, Physics, MSE, Electrical Engineering & Mechanical Engineering and unergraduate students from even more disciplines. The photo in the bottom right shows the majority of the group in Summer 2013. In Fall 2013, there were 14 graduate students, 10 undergraduate students and 2 postdoctoral researchers in the group. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact me at the email address in the bottom left.

Graduate Students

Graduate students from many different department join my group. Graduate students perform research and are typically in charge of a set of instrumentation. Graduate students mentor the undergraduate students in the lab and sometimes are appointed as Teaching Assistants. Graduate students attend conferences as soon as they have presentable results and travel to collaborating groups across the US and abroad. If you are interested, please do contact me.


Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students join my research lab to acquire hands-on experience in actual research work. This requires significant time committment and personal engagement. Most undergraduate researchers work at least 3 half-days per week in the lab and often stay here also between other classes. Undergraduate researchers are mentored by and assigned to graduate students and initially work closely with their mentors until they acquire sufficient skills to work independently. Often there are paid undergraduate research opportunities available in summer for students who have obtained experience in the lab starting in winter. Undergraduate students are part of publications from the lab and they attend regional research conferences. If you are interested and have sufficient time available, please contact me anytime or just stop by.
