Chemical Engineering & Process Development

About Me

We are focusing on the design and development of nanomaterials for biological, sensing and catalytic applications. Our research interests include but are not limited to the areas of nucleation and growth of inorganic crystals, interfaces of nanoparticles, metal-organic frameworks. We combine experimental and simulation studies to develop a mechanistic approach to understand the growth of inorganic particles and their functionalization in a complex chemical environment.
