    Our research program lies at the interface between chemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science. The goal of our research program is to develop high performance nano-catalysts. We focus on photocatalytic materials for solar-to-chemical energy conversions and heterogeneous catalysts for energy-synthesis reactions in order to solve the current energy crisis. We primarily utilize wet-chemistry synthesis and vapor-phase deposition strategies to precisely control the materials at the nanoscale for optimizing the catalytic performances.
