Research Interests: Magnetic and EPR studies of mono- and polynuclear complexes, establishment of the relationship between structure and reactivity of complexes with various metal ions (Cu, Ru, Co, Fe, Mn, Re, V, La, Gd, Tb, Dy, etc.).
Research Interest: Current research directions focus on magnetic properties of molecular thin films, spintronic applications, novel fabrication methods for oxides, detailed structural characterization of films and interfaces, and nanowire devices.
Research Interests: Investigations of the fundamental mechanisms governing energy transformations in nature, with particular interest in discerning the role of electronic structure in these mechanisms; also interested in applying this lens to research questions in different fields/areas.
Research Interests: Design and synthesis of new nanoscale inorganic materials in order to study their interesting physical properties such as magnetism, conductivity and optical properties. Particular research emphasis is made on the preparation and characterization of mixed-metal Single Molecule Magnets (SMMs) and Single Chain Magnets (SCMs). Such systems hold the promise of creating novel nanoscale devices for quantum computing and molecular electronics.
Research Interests: Our lab explores reactions catalyzed by radical SAM enzymes and then reprograms them to affect different product outcomes. Characterization of radical intermediates via EPR and computation afford new insights into the exotic mechanisms these enzymes employ.
