My current research interests are centered around two-dimensional (2D) materials and investigation of their properties through scanning probe microscopy, such as piezoresponse (PFM), and Kelvin probe (KPFM) modes. I am interested in the discovery and exploration of ferroic behaviour in 2D materials such as CuInP2S6 and In2Se3 and the group-IV monochalcogenides e.g. GeS, SnSe. Recently I have taken a huge interest in twisted bilayer graphene and the physics that results from the appearance of a moiré superlattice, especially at the so-called magic angle.
I'm currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Physics at Columbia University where I hold an Advanced Postdoc Mobility Fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Previously, for a period of over 4 years, I was a postdoc at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland in the group of Prof Setter working on ferroelectric thin films and nanostructures. A main focus of my work was the investigation of domain wall motion and the formation of charged domain walls. I obtained my PhD in 2011 under the supervision of Prof Gregg at Queen’s University Belfast. This work centered on domain patterns in single-crystal nanoscale ferroelectric structures.
