Here at ASU, my research is focused on pushing the boundaries of what we can learn about materials through state-of-the-art microscopy techniques. For example, ASU houses a scanning transmission electron microscope that has spatial and energy resolutions that are among the best in the world. This capability is opening a new era in materials analysis, whereby we can study the atomic vibrations in a material using a finely focused electron beam. In fact, it may even allow us to map the vibrational properties of materials with atomic spatial resolution, potentially transforming the way we study a range of technologically-relevant materials. This is one of the research avenues that he is pursuing with vigor.
On the teaching side, the coming Spring semester you will see him begin teaching PHYS 252 Waves and Thermodynamics. He states, " I am really enthusiastic about the opportunity to engage with the students here at ASU. I firmly believe that teaching of the highest level is absolutely essential for perpetuating the beauty and wonder of physics, and I am looking forward to playing my part."
