Colloidal Nanomaterials
Ultrafast Spectroscopy
Time-Resolved Microscopy

We are an experimental research group, under the direction of Professor William Tisdale, in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT. Broadly, our interests lie in understanding and controlling the movement of energy in nanostructured materials. We care about the mechanisms by which excitons, free charges, phonons (heat), and reactive chemical species are converted to more useful forms of energy, and how we can leverage this understanding to guide materials design and process optimization. We specialize in advanced optical spectroscopy techniques, including femtosecond laser methods and time-resolved optical microscopy, and we’re particularly enthusiastic about the use of colloidal quantum dots¬†and 2D materials in next-generation renewable energy technologies.
