Our research areas lie at the intersection of thermal sciences, energy sciences and applied physics. We are broadly interested in studying the thermal and electronic properties of electrical insulators, semiconductors and metals. We develop computational and experimental tools to probe the microscopic, quantum-mechanical interactions among energy carriers that drive macroscopic energy transport properties such as thermal conductivity, electronic mobility and thermoelectric coefficients.
