I am a research scientist specializing in materials science and nanotechnology with a background in applied physics and chemistry. My main expertise lies in laser processing, gas and liquid-phase synthesis of nanostructured materials, zinc oxide and carbon-based materials. I also have extensive experience in materials characterization and project management.
