Founder of TiberLAB
Energy, thermoelectrics, nanoscale energy transfer
My research seeks to elucidate transport phenomena via multiscale/multiphysics modeling and theory development, for the realization of high performance nanostructured devices mainly for solid-state energy conversion and storage, including thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics and photovoltaics.
