    Research Interests:

    My activities are focused on semi-empirical and first principles studies of nanoscopic materials, mostly carbon nanotubes based systems. My work includes the characterization and property of carbon nanocomposites with different morphology or anomalous structures (defects, 2D, and 3D networks), the study of the electronic and field emission properties of  carbon-boron-nitride hybrids, quantum transport in multi-branched assemblies, and gas adsorption/diffusion on the surface and inside carbon nanotube systems. More recent interests include the interaction of carbon nanostructures with metallic surfaces (electronic properties and mechanical stability).
