The defining goal of our research is to achieve atomic level control of the catalytic active sites of heterogeneous materials through creating novel designs and using advanced synthetic methods. These materials are interrogated through spectroscopic techniques that enable improved design.

Research Opportunities

My research interests involve using synthetic techniques to create novel materials and understand how these novel materials assemble.

Graduate Research Assistant

Students wanting to learn organic and inorganic synthetic techniques for creating catalytic materials. Highly motivated students will gain considerable skills in heterogeneous catalytic material synthesis, characterization, and catalytic testing with considerable opportunities to advance fundamental research in the field of catalysis.
