Research Scientist


Synthesis of New Nitride and Oxynitride Compounds for Fuel Cell Applications



Ph. D. University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK , 2010



Research Experience:

Solid state materials, mainly oxynitrides; synthesis (glove box handling, ammonolysis and high pressure and temperature synthesis), thermogravimetric analysis, powder X-ray diffraction (Diamond synchrotron high pressure diamond anvil cell), powder neutron diffraction (ILL constant wavelength and ISIS time-of-flight), Rietveld refinement, magnetization and (magneto)resistance measurements.
