Research Interests

​My research interests are in the synthesis and characterization of novel materials for renewable energy applications, especially nanoparticles. As a part of that, I focus on the conversion of energy to hydrogen via the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen gases through electrochemical and photoelectrochemical processes.
