Academic interests

- I am a doctoral research fellow, working on oxide thermoelectrics, investigating p-n junction interface through different experimental techniques, with the supervision of Prof. Truls Norby.

- My research interests include energy materials and energy harvesting devices such as thermoelectric generators, fuel cells, and electrolyzers.
