My research and development experience has involved the synthesis, characterization, and modification of nanostructured materials and their incorporation into devices for the improvement of biomedical, defense, and alternative energy applications. Nanomaterial synthesis was achieved primarily by physical and chemical vapor deposition methods to produce metallic and carbonaceous materials in the form of thin films, nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanosheets, and unique hybrid nanomaterials. Strong experience with electrochemical and materials characterization techniques were developed along with thermal, chemical, electrochemical, and plasma-based methods for surface modification. Research applications included neural stimulation, supercapacitors, fuel cells, batteries, and electrochemical sensors.
