I am interested in calculating the transport properties of two dimensional materials using a Boltzmann equation approach to calculate the transport coefficients and in calculating the effects of impurities or absorbed atoms on the surface of these two dimensional materials. In addition to this work, I hope to investigate the transport properties of phonons and the interplay between electron and phonon transport in materials in which their is a strong interaction between the electron and phonon baths.

Research Interests
Boltzmann transport in two and three dimensional materials
Propagation of Plasmonic waves in lattice structures
Propagation of Magonic waves in lattice structures
Magnetism in Graphene and other two dimensional materials
