Research combines chemistry disciplines of inorganic, solid-state, materials, and electrochemistry for clean energy applications. Research is focused on design, synthesis, and characterization of thin film-type electrodes (semiconducting and metallic crystals) with controlled micro- and nano-structures for use in electrochemical and photoelectrochemical devices. Another area of focus is studying the interactions at the surface of semiconductor electrodes.
