Research Interest:
Synthesis and experimental analysis of advanced nanomaterials. In particular, focus is on graphene-related architectures such as graphene nanoflakes, carbon nanofoam, curved carbon structures and graphene quantum dots. The physics of such low-dimensional nanostructures is also probed by theoretical studies using computer modeling and quantum calculations.
