Research interests:

Non-merohedral twinning is a phenomenon that seems to occur frequently in our laboratory. We have developed methods and software to deal with the problems associated with exactly and partially overlapped reflections. To date, we have refined about 100 non-merohedrally twinned structures using these methods.

Rietveld analysis is a long time interest.
