We study the design and synthesis of new materials for advanced technologies. Synthesis of materials is achieved by both traditional ceramic routes and novel low-temperature methods. My research is aimed at understanding the relationship between the crystalline structure and electronic properties of materials. Specific research areas include the study of luminescence properties of new materials and the study of the implication of magnetic ordering on the electronic properties of materials. We also examine the potential of new materials with tailored bandgap for photo-assisted catalytic processes.
