Associate Professor, Inorganic Chemistry
Office: Davis Hall D-103
- B.Sc., University of Bucharest, 1995
- M.Sc., Coordinative compounds, University of Bucharest, 1996
- Ph. D., University of Bucharest, 2001
My entire research was focused generally on materials chemistry mainly on sol-gel processes, monodisperse particles and carbon multiwall nanotubes for advance materials preparation.
At Lehman my research program is focused on:
- Study on inorganic and hybrid Sol-Gel materials with applications in hermetic coatings for electronics such as OLEDS.
- Fundamental study on the mechanism of formation of the hybrid organic-inorganic gels using spectroscopic methods.
- Preparation of oxide mono-disperse particles for targeting of the cancer cell and for Drug Delivery.
- Investigation of the optical properties of oxide thin films prepared by sol-gel.
