We are a semiconductor devices group with interest all the way from materials growth to device fabrication, characterization and modeling. Currently, the group's focus is on developing novel wide-bandgap and phase-transition materials and devices. For further details on active research areas in the group, please check the research and publications page.

PhD and Masters/Dual Degree students with background in Electronics, Physics or Materials and motivated to work on exciting problems in semiconductor physics, material growth, and device fabrication can email their CV with a short description about their interests. Recently graduated PhDs whose research work aligns with the group and are looking for post-doc opportunities are also welcome to email their CVs with a short summary of the work done during PhD and future research interests.
