About Me

Research in our group revolves around the synthesis of catalysts and materials that are inspired from nature. We are also interested in the fundamental understanding of their catalytic activity, directed self-assembly and hierarchical organization which allows us to generate bio-inspired artificial materials for diverse applications in chemistry and biology.
