I am interested in the electronic properties of semiconductors, particularly 2D materials like graphene and transition metal dichaclogenides. These fascinating materials could have applications ranging from flexible electronics to photovoltaics. Currently, I am investigating the charge and energy exchange processes when a carbon nanomembrane is irradiated with highly charged ions. In the future, I hope to study the postulated ultrafast charge transfer process in photoexcited transition metal dichalcogenide heterostructures.
