Research Interests

​My research interests focus on catalysis and reaction engineering innovation for the conversion of fossil and biomass feedstocks to fuels and chemicals. Heterogeneous catalyst development for ultra-clean fuels production from fuel processing, CO2 conversion and utilization; reforming of hydrocarbon and alcohol fuels for syngas and H2 production; catalysis and reaction chemistry for energy conversion; and synthesis and applications of nano-porous catalytic and sorbent materials.
