Research Interests and Expertise

  • Physical Chemistry
  • Chemical thermodynamics: assessment of the stability of the molecules using quantum-chemical calculations (HyperChem, Gaussian 9.0W, GaussView 5.0) and molecular dynamics (VAMD/NAMD, GROMACS)
  • The determination of reaction energies and equilibrium constants; differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
  • Colloid and surface chemistry: the study of metal nanoparticles and nanocomposites using imaging techniques  (AFM, TEM/SEM, fluorescence) and spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR)
  • Obtaining thin films using Langmuir-Blodgett technique (LBT),  molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), nanolithography (NIL) and spin-coating
