I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in materials science and engineering (ES 260), reactor design (CH 345), microelectronic circuit fabrication (ES 357/557), surface reactivity: applications to microelectronics and catalysis (CH 441/541), thermodynamics (ES 340), biochemical engineering (CH 465), and corrosion engineering (ES 464/564). The course outlines can be accessed below.
ES 260: Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering
ES 340: Thermodynamics
ES357/ES557/EE345 Microelectronic Circuit Fabrication
CH 441/541: Surface Reactivity: Applications to Microelectronics and Catalysis
CH 465: Biochemical Engineering
CH 345: Chemical Reactor Analysis
ES 464/564: Corrosion Engineering
My research focuses on applying knowledge of the fundamentals of electrochemistry to interesting problems in biosensors, sustainable energy, semiconductor processing, and nanotechnology. This often involves the use of analytical techniques involving electrochemistry and spectroscopy, as well as mathemtical modeling of reaction and transport processes. My research intersts range from fundamental science to practical technology development.
My research group is primarily interested in electrochemical methods for depositing thin films for solar cell applications, electrochemical methods for biosensing, and thin film growth and dissolution for ULSI devices
