RESEARCH AREAS

We are an inorganic research group with interests in the preparation and interrogation of molecular and interfacial electrocatalysts for sustainable energy applications. We draw conceptual inspiration from enzyme active sites to design efficient, selective, and tunable synthetic catalysts. We use cyclic voltammetry, spectroelectrochemistry, time-resolved FT-IR spectroscopy, and SEIRA spectroscopy to gain a deeper understanding of relevant governing parameters and mechanisms.
