Research interests:
Nanostructured for energy conversion and storage, including electrocatalysis, advanced supercapacitors or batteries and photoelectrochemical water splitting.

 

Main contributions and projects:
Our present research focuses on nanoscaled functional materials for sustainable energy applications. The major goal of my research group is to develop novel strategies and techniques exploiting nanoscale architectures through tailoring their structures, dimensions and chemical interfaces at the molecular level in order to enhance the efficiency of alternative energy conversion and storage devices. We launch interdisciplinary efforts to approach this goal with an emphasis on understanding the basic chemical and physical principles governing nanoscale effects on these important processes. So far, we have published over 50 peer-reviewed papers in top-ranked journals, including those in Science, Nature Mater., Nature Nanotechnol., Nature Commun. The papers have been cited close to 8,000 times with an H-index of 30.
