Academic interests

The combination of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) allows for probing materials' properties, such as vibrational and optical response, structure, electronic structure and bonding, at the nanometre- to atomic scale. Understanding such properties, and how they are connected, is of importance for nano- and materials science, where a main goal is to be able to “tailor” materials’ properties at the nanoscale. I focus in particular on the development and application of advanced EELS techniques in the TEM for investigating the effect of dimensionality and defects on electronic structure, vibrational and optical properties of nanomaterials.  I have worked with advanced characterisation of a wide range of materials systems, such as: graphene and other two-dimensional materials, carbon materials, catalysts, semiconductors and metal alloys.
