Expertise: Our research focuses on catalyst design for sustainable chemistry and clean energy applications. We are specifically interested in investigating lignin depolymerization chemistry for the sustainable production of new aromatic feedstocks. We are also investigating the production, storage, and delivery of hydrogen as an alternative clean fuel to fossil fuels, with particular emphasis on ammonia splitting chemistry for hydrogen release. Finally, new avenues in abundant metal-main group cooperative chemistry are being investigated for potential applications in small molecule catalysis and/or as redox partners in redox-flow batteries for energy storage.
