Gilbert's research focuses on the chemical synthesis of and direct-write nanostructuring of the two-dimensional (2D) materials, graphene, and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN). The goal of my ork is to 1.) understand and control the properties of the large-scale chemical synthesis of high-quality 2D materials, 2.) to develop new methods for the fabrication of nanostructures (e.g. nanoribbons, nanopores, nanopatterned heterostructures, etc.) in these 2D sheets, and 3.) to explore the applications of these materials for nanoscale sensing.
