Research specialization
Ferroelectric and ferroelastic materials; Physics education; Undergraduate laboratory pedagogy.


I have used Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy to study structural phase transitions in ferroelectric and ferroelastic materials. My most recent work was related to ferroelastics, which transform into a super-protonic phase. These materials may find important applications in fuel cells and various sensors. Over the last few years, I have conducted research in the area of physics education. My recent publications have been related to online learning and undergraduate physics laboratory pedagogy.
