We develop electrocatalysts to enhance fuel production and consumption reactions. Our approach combines
synthesis, testing, characterization, and modeling to understand catalyst properties and design new materials
with improved performance.
Artificial photosynthesis conversion is a promising way to convert solar energy into storable fuel, with potential
applications in water splitting, CO2 conversion, and N2 to ammonia conversion. To achieve efficient solar to fuel
conversion, we aim to develop visible light active photocatalysts with maximum absorption ability for solar
photons (UV, Visible, and Near IR) and efficient photoexcited charge separation and transport properties.
"This is the focus of our "visible photocatalyst design" project."
