When two powerful earthquakes rocked southern California earlier this month, officials’ attention focused, understandably, on safety. How many people were injured? Were buildings up to code? How good are we at predicting earthquakes?
His research is dedicated to the development of experimental tools and expertise critical for controlled synthesis and characterization of complex oxides, and gaining deep understanding of structure-composition-function relationships.
