Research areas


  • Heterogeneous Catalysis
  • Materials Chemistry including Nanomaterials
  • Fuel Cell Research
  • Solar Energy

We are developing novel methods of synthesizing noble metal clusters and nanoparticles encapsulated in oxides endowing them with enhanced properties useful in bioimaging and catalysis. We are also developing structured oxides like perovskites as sinter-resistant catalysts in Water Gas Shift Reaction in H2 generation for fuel cells. New disordered structured oxides capable of separating O2 and N2 are also focused on as well as novel structured and composite materials for solar energy harvesting focusing on spatial separation.
