Research Interests:

Organic synthesis, computational chemistry, photochemistry, and environmental chemistry. The main interest is to study the photo-physical and photo-chemical properties of organic compound especially polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). I am particularly interested in their applications in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), Field Effect transistors (FETs), photovoltaic cells, and other electronic properties.
