In-Situ Characterization and Nanomechanics


Ph.D., Materials Science and Engineering, University of California Davis, 2012

B.S., Chemistry (with Honors), University of Redlands, 2008



Current research interests are on in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to study the nanoscale mechanisms that relate structure to properties for solid-liquid interfacial reactions.

  • Development of new instrumentation for controlled environmental mechanical testing within the TEM, investigation of chemical-electrochemical-mechanical processes within materials at nanoscale
  • Quantitative electrochemical testing (organic electrolytes, ionic liquid electrolytes, and solid electrolytes) on individual nanostructures
  • Observation of nanoparticle assembly and growth in a liquid environment
  • Corrosion mechanisms of real materials at the nanoscale
  • Beginning work on Environmental TEM, study of catalyst nanoparticles and gas-reactions at solid surfaces
