Born: 1900

Interests: solid state, nanotechnology, plasmonics, surface science, self-assembly, surface electronic properties, catalysis, scanning tunneling microscopy, instrumentation

Solid state physics of dimensionally reduced systems, mainly focused on the geometric, electronic, dynamical, and optical properties of surfaces and thin films. I am also interested in instrumentation development.
