RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AND INTERESTS
One of my research areas is in the study of thermodynamic properties of glassy materials. We have being carrying out a systematic study of silica doped with different elements. Some of these systems are important materials for building fiber optic networks.We are also studying possible correlation between the low temperature thermal properties of these glasses with that close to their glass transition temperatures.

The other area of research is the interfacial phenomena. In particular, we focus on interfacial melting and related phenomena such as frost heave. We are currently conducting a measurement of excess heat transfer associated with frost heave of ice in porous media, and the excess heat transfer of gases adsorbed on aerogel materials

The techniques we are using include thermal transport, dielectric response, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy.
