I am interested in processing-microstructure–properties relationships studies of high temperature superconductors.

I am currently studying two high temperature superconductors, Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox (Bi2212) and YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO). I have been trying to understand processing-microstructure–properties relationships and to enhance the superconductivity properties through different mechanism in each of these materials. SEM, TEM, STEM, SQUID, DTA, TGA, XRD, XPS, SIMS-TOF and cryogenic transport set up are the main characterization tools that I have been using in my research. I really enjoy my research journey since these high temperature superconductors have amazing microstructure features and physical properties to study. I’m in love with high temperature superconductors because they are extraordinary challenging. I love taking on challenges because it makes me feel like I’m doing something productive and useful. I have completed my PhD in July 2014 and continued my scientific journey as a postdoc in the same group.
