Research Interests

Preparation and characterization of nanomaterials and nanostructures and their applications in energy, photocatalyst, sensing

I am interested in nanomaterials of a wide variety of substances (metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers) in a wide range of form (mesoporous, particle, thin film, wire, tube, rod, template, core-shell, alloy, and composite) prepared via a number of different routes (electrochemical deposition, chemical vapor deposition, sol-gel, hydrothermal, solvothermal, etc.) for potential applications in solar cells, supercapacitor, photocatalytic water splitting, sensors, photocatalysts, etc.
