Principal Research Interests

We use vibrational sum frequency generation (VSFG) and two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR) spectroscopy to study the interfacial structure and ultrafast dynamics of organic electronic materials. Students in our group learn many facets of linear and nonlinear spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and materials characterization.
