Research Summary

Our research centers on developing scale-bridging molecular design approaches for: (i) defect manipulation through chemical design of 2D layered metal chalcogenide nanostructures; (ii) elucidation of spin- and charge-transport dynamics at organic-inorganic interfaces; (iii) realization of topological states in 2D single-crystalline coordination polymers and small organic molecules; and (iv) understanding the effects of covalent and non-covalent interactions on excimer formation.
