My research is focused on understanding crystal growth on an atomic scale, and how control of this process can be used to design new materials not existing in nature. Over the past decade my research group has focused on synthesis of III-V semiconductors in the form of nanowires as a means to control their material properties. Today the major part of our research uses in-situ transmission electron microscopy to understand semiconductor nanostructure growth processes in real time.

Teaching: I currently teach the second-year course Functional Materials for Engineering Nanoscience, third-year course Materials and Polymer Technology for Chemical Engineering students, and fourth-year (Masters) course Materials Chemistry offered to both Chemical Engineering and Engineering Nanoscience.
