Expertise and Interests: 

The use of metal-oxide interfaces has gained a lot of interest due to the wide array of applications in fields like heterogeneous catalysis, interfacial science and thermal barrier coating. By their nature, the bonding between atoms of these interfaces are complex and this has a direct impact on the electronic and mechanical properties of the interface. For this reason, it is crucial to understand the structure and properties of the interface to be able to optimize these properties via processing condition. My research involves modeling and prediction of one such interface between Platinum and Alumina
