Juan Carlos Ramos

Postdoctoral Education, Outreach, Diversity Coordinator
Department of Chemistry, Oregon State University
Supervisor: Prof. Douglas A. Keszler
Juan Carlos's research is focused on the design and synthesis of nanostructured materials and the development of solution based deposition techniques for thin films and their applications in electronic devices. He is also interested in understanding the elemental properties of these materials and devices through extensive physicochemical, morphological and electrical characterization analysis.
