    Our interests lie at the intersection of optics and electronics, where we use a variety of organic and inorganic materials to realize new, practically useful devices and to explore new physics that emerge along the way.  In particular, we focus on challenges related to solar energy conversion with the ultimate goal of developing an economically viable alternative to fossil fuels.  Working with materials ranging from organic semiconductors to liquid crystals to colloidal quantum dots, our group leverages creativity and curiosity to address real-world problems in a fun and fast-paced research environment.
