Personal profile

Research interests

My interests are based around the development of heterogeneous catalysts for sustainable chemical transformations. My research is focused on understanding the relationships between the structure of catalytic materials and catalytic activity – particular the characterisation of catalytic materials under operating conditions using spectroscopic techniques.  

Now my focus is utilising renewable energy in catalytic transformations using a wide range of approaches including electrocatalysis and visible light photocatalysis to upgrade resources such as CO2 and bio-ethanol into valuable commodity chemicals.
