Dr. Jinschek has strong expertise in high resolution and in-situ electron microscopy focusing on extracting materials’ structural information at the atomic scale using state-of-the-art methodologies. His group at OSU's Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) focuses on developing atomic scale in-situ / operando EM with the ability to directly observe and quantify dynamic transformational events in functional nanomaterials. These studies, combined with supplementary characterization techniques and computational modeling, will be essential to understand structure-property relationships on their characteristic length scales.
