• To conduct research in the area of dielectric materials at different physical states.
  • Specifically, in order to enhance the understanding of dielectric phenomena, the electronic conduction and swarm, partial discharges and breakdown are studied in high-vacuum (10-8 torr), gaseous, liquid, solid and nano-dielectrics.
