My current research activity is focused on the development of catalytic metal-organic frameworks for environmental and energy related applications. The produced catalysts are primarily used in carbon capture and conversion into hydrocarbon fuels and other chemicals as well as for decontamination of wastewater. A variety of materials synthesis methods including aerosol processing and solvothermal techniques are utilized. Various sophisticated materials characterization techniques are employed to study the materials property at macro- and micro-scale.
My long-term goal is to contribute to the continuous development of sustainable solutions to address current and emerging environmental challenges.
