Areas of Expertise/Research Interests (List All Please)
To sum up, I Solve Problems. I find solutions Independently or as part of a Team. I provide Leadership, learn from people with more experience and continuously improve my knowledge base.
I am a Chemist with Expertise in Ultrahigh Vacuum (UHV) Systems, Surface Characterization Techniques, and Instrumentation Interfacing for the Study of Surface Chemistry.
I am an Entrepreneur. I founded a company to provide tools for non-native English speakers to publish their research.
In 2015, I completed my two-year Postdoctoral Training at the University of Notre Dame. The project with Prof. Kuno (2013-2014) involved studying the reduction dynamics of graphene oxide using optical absorption and emission. This project resulted in two peer-reviewed publications in a high-impact journal: Nano Letters.The project with Prof. Ptasinska (2014-2015) involved the creation of a custom apparatus to study the electron attachment mechanisms of gas- and condensed-phase systems. I constructed and tested the UHV system from ground-up and wrote a custom LabView Program to interface a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer with a Monochromatic Electron Source.
In 2013, I received Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology. My Ph.D. advisor was Prof. Thomas M. Orlando. My graduate work involved studying the chemistry and properties of graphene and graphene oxide. The work was funded by the Georgia Tech Material Research Science and Engineering Center and resulted in one patent and two peer-reviewed publications in high-impact journals.
TECHNIQUES AND SPECIALTIES:
• Microscopy: SEM, AFM, Optical Microscopy
• Spectroscopy: XPS, Auger, Raman, FTIR, UV-Vis Spectroscopy
• Separation and Characterization: HPLC, GC-MS, NMR, TOF-MS, quadrupole mass spectrometry
• Cleanroom Experience: optical lithography, plasma-enhanced deposition/etching, metallization
• Ultrahigh Vacuum: design, maintenance and utilization of UHV systems; LabView instrumentation interfacing; design of UHV components using SolidWorks

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
