We are extremely proud to announce the latest addition to the team: Dr. Thanh Thao Tran, who will join the Department of Chemistry in the Fall 2019 as Assistant Professor.
The Tran Laboratory will focus on understanding and overcoming fundamental challenges in energy and information technology research by applying the approaches of synthetic inorganic solid-state chemistry. Chemically controlled synthesis and design will be used to target new systems, and structure and property characterizations (e.g., advanced synchrotron X-ray, time-of-flight neutron scattering, spectroscopic methods and electronic properties) will aid in understanding of materials. The group will then correlate structural details of materials with their physical properties in the development of materials to meet the demands of our future society in energy, for example, new materials for quantum computation and semiconductors for solar energy conversion. Our research program allows each graduate student to learn synthetic techniques, characterize their materials, and collaborate with scientists in the field.
