Assistant Professor, Dept of Chemistry
Krieger School of Arts & Sciences
- Synthesis of solid-state materials to help address extant challenges in environmental sustainability and in human health.
- Development of diverse synthetic methods to make solid-state structures and devices embodying new phases, architectures, and topologies. Since these materials can exert unique control over critical physical processes (e.g. mass, charge, and energy transport), they can be used to study un-answered questions in basic science and to define advances in solar cells, catalysts, thermoelectrics, self-assembly, optics, electronics, and biological imaging.
Assistant Scientist, Dept of Environmental Health and Engineering
Director of Research Program and Food System Sustainability & Public Health Program, Center for a Livable Future
Bloomberg School of Public Health
- Policy and social science research on themes relevant to understanding and changing food systems, including promoting environmental sustainability and addressing disparities.
- Food and ecological concerns, including climate change, peak oil, and soil.
- Public health and agricultural policy, especially the Farm Bill.
- Access to sustainably produced and healthy food.
