I am currently supervising 3 postdoctoral fellows, 1 graduate student and 1 undergraduate. We try to do things that are awesome.


We use X-ray sources around the world around the world to understand disordered materials, particularly at interfaces, using large international laser facilities such as those in Italy and Japan. This includes materials such as liquids to better understand fundamental phenomena like how evaporation occurs. It also includes solar cells where we try to make ever more efficient devices.
