My research interests are in compound semicondcutors, dilute semiconductor alloys, transparent condutors, and novel materials for thin film photovoltaics. I use a variety of epitaxial growth methods such as ion implantation and pulsed laser melting (II-PLM), molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), and organometallic vapor phase epitaxy (OMVPE / MOCVD) to synthesize thin semicondcutor films. My research at the University of Utah focuses on novel semiconductor materials that are environmentally-benign and abundanat for use in thin film photovoltaics.
