Research Interests

​My major area of research interest is in the field of heterogeneous catalysis for industrial applications using bi-metallic system. It involves particularly the design of Ni-based bimetallic catalysts, characterizations and performance evaluation toward dehydrogenation of Liquid organic hydride couples, such as methylcyclohexane (MCH)–toluene (TOL), which have offered potential industrial candidates for efficient and safe hydrogen storage and transport.
