I am interested in the ultrafast properties of materials, using atomic-scale real-time probes to visualize and control processes of relevance to energy conversion and information processing.

Research Interests

My research is focused on probing and directing the ultrafast dynamics and atomic-scale structure of materials on femtosecond and picosecond time-scales. X-ray techniques are combined with ultrafast laser techniques to provide a new way of taking snapshots of materials in motion. Current research is focused on the dynamics of phase transitions, ultrafast properties of nanoscale materials, oxide ferroelectric dynamics, and THz photonics.
