We develop bottom-up synthetic methodologies for shape-specific nanocrystals and study their formation mechanisms, optical and catalytic properties, surface chemistry and structural stability in different environments.
Waste Molecules Upgrading
Working at the nexus of nanoscience, catalysis, and electrochemistry, we advance technologies for treating and upgrading carbon and nitrogen emissions.
Catalysis for Energy
With circular economy goal in mind, we study structure-property relationships in catalytic systems for flue-to-fuel conversion and hydrogen storage and utilization.
