Research Interests

Structure-property relationships are of utmost importance when considering material stability. To explore these relationships, a common instrument is the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), which is a powerful tool to probe materials at atomic-resolution. For Abby’s PhD work, she will be using TEM to understand the role of defects (e.g. grain boundaries) on perovskite stability so we can engineer more robust modules.
