Research Interests

My research interests are centered on determining structure–property relationships in functional materials using diffraction techniques coupled with physical property measurements to understand how material properties can be designed on the atomic scale. I work mainly with metal–organic frameworks and coordination polymers and use non-ambient diffraction experiments (variable temperature and high pressure) to follow the structural changes of the crystalline material and the consequence on its physical properties.

My present work focusses on developing structure–property relationships in iron-based spin crossover materials.
