My research focuses on the use of glyme in synthesis of nanomaterials. One project focuses on the use of glyme in the synthesis of gold nanoclusters. My main project focuses on the synthesis of a gel material, formed from nanocluster precursors, developed in the Ackerson lab. My work focuses on the structure and synthesis of this material, as well as investigating its physical properties.
