About Us

Our group focuses on developing methodologies for solving the ‘nanostructure problem‘: determining the structure of materials at the atomic scale to help understand structure-synthesis-property relationships in complex and functional materials . We develop and utilize experimental procedures at high flux x-ray and neutron producing facilities coupled with software and workflow solutions for complex modeling and high throughput structural analysis, solution, and prediction at the nanoscale. We apply these tools toward amorphous and nanostructured pharmaceuticals and molecular materials, nanoscale fluctuations in exotic electronic materials, nanostructured materials for energy and environmental remediation, among many other topics.
