Professor Ghosh's research interests cover both traditional topics and emerging multi-disciplinary themes in condensed matter physics. Her group focuses on the physics of new materials and using ultra-fast opto-electronic techniques, develops methods and protocols to manipulate their properties for applications in energy storage and information processing devices.
The current research topics in her group include:
- Cooperative energy transfer dynamics in self-assembled nanostructured materials
- Directed assembly of metallic, magnetic and semiconducting nanostructures using liquid crystal based electro-optically active matrices
- Hybrid photovoltaic devices including solar cells and luminescent solar concentrators
- Exotic magnetic phases originating from geometric frustration in doped and undoped systems
- In addition, Professor Ghosh is also the founding faculty and advisor of UC Merced Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE@UCM).
