We design and synthesize inorganic-organic hybrid solid-state materials at the atomic, molecular, and nano-scale levels. The research will leverage the versatility of inorganic chemistry and controllability of organic chemistry to develop novel materials with targeting chemical and physical properties.
We currently focus on the development of novel metal-organic solids as semiconductors for electronic devices and as solid-state ion conductors for batteries.
