Our aim is to develop a fundamental understanding of atomistic phenomena occuring at electrolyte-solid interfaces. The objective is to achieve extreme control over material synthesis at such interfaces. This knowledge is applied to the electrochemical synthesis of metals and metal oxides with tunable properties; a synthesis that in turn is utilized in electronic and energy conversion devices.
The general field of the research in our lab is the development of novel systems for medical imaging. Of particular interest are imaging systems utilizing x-rays (i.e. radiography, x-ray tomosynthesis, x-ray computed tomography (CT)) and/or nuclear medicine (i.e. scintigraphy, gamma ray emission tomosynthesis, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission computed tomography (PET)). In recent years we have focused on the development of multimodal hybrid systems that integrate anatomic and functional image sets.
The group's goal is to think beyond the next generation of technology, to encourage new ideas, and to explore new pathways for experimental physics.
