Physicist - NRC Postdoc

My research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of 2D materials.  In particular, I utilize laboratory- and synchrotron-based X-ray techniques to provide rapid and detailed feedback on the relationship between synthesis conditions and the eventual structure of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides.   Additionally, I frequently collaborate in research campaigns spanning a range of other material systems.  This involves the design, execution, and analysis of X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) measurements under both ex situ and operando conditions.

During graduate school, I was heavily involved in the design and operation of X-ray spectroscopy instrumentation at the University of Washington.  This included both experimental and theoretical efforts to advance materials research with lab-based XAFS and X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) analyses.  Studies primarily focused on energy storage materials, catalysts, heavy metals in the environment, and ions in solution.  I have carried many of the materials science lessons learned in these endeavors into my present research.
