Research Interests: Nanoparticles, Catalysis and Green Chemistry
We focus on sustainable solutions for nanomaterials and biopolymer synthesis as well as catalyzed reactions, with an interest in waste biomass valorization, earth abundant starting materials and high atom economy. Our group is particularly interested in using mechanochemical and solid-state reactions for the design of nanomaterials and biopolymers.
