Research Interests: My primary research interest lies in solid-state chemistry and physics. My work involves the preparation and characterization of various inorganic oxide and organic materials, driven by both academic curiosity and technological necessity. Utilizing solid-state and chemical synthesis routes, I employ a range of experimental techniques, including x-ray, neutron, and electron diffraction for structural characterization, as well as measurements of magnetic, electrical transport, photoluminescence, and ferroelectrics for physical property assessments. The aim is to design new materials that exhibit a correlation between structural, magnetic, luminescence, and electrical properties.
