Research Focus

My research focuses on a wide range of materials applications from solar energy conversion to photomechanical polymers involving organic/inorganic synthesis, device fabrication, and characterization.

If you can’t find me in the lab, I’m usually…

on the golf course, hanging with friends, or taking my wife on a date.

Favorite place in Tallahassee?

Proof Brewery or Township

What are your future plans?

I hope to get a job in industry (preferably in a mountainous region) for a company whose aim is to advance and fundamentally change the world’s energy infrastructure.
