Supervisor: Dr Emiliano Bilotti
Expertise: My current research projects mainly focus on synthesis and development of low-cost and environment -friendly thermoelectric materials and scaling-up synthesis of high-performance thermoelectric materials for device fabrication. I am interested in exploring new materials, investigating the effects of synthesis on materials' microstructures and optimizing materials' electrical and thermal transport properties via doping, band structure engineering, microstructure modification, high-entropy effects, etc. I am experienced in different synthesis methods (such as spark plasma sintering, flash sintering, magnetic alignment, mechanical alloying, etc), advanced characterizations of thermoelectric materials and interpretations of electrical and thermal transport properties.
