Personal profile

Research interests

We are a team of chemists and engineers developing new catalytic methodologies for sustainable chemistry and clean energy. This spans a wide range of topics and methodologies, including:

- polymetallic base metal complexes for cooperative catalysis

- electrocatalysis for renewable energy conversion

- operando spectroscopy (FlowNMR) for mechanism-guided homogeneous catalyst development

- process and phase engineering with near- and supercritical fluids for continuous-flow catalysis
