We use a combination of first-principles simulations, kinetic modeling and data science to computationally design inorganic materials for heterogeneous catalysis, environmentally benign energy conversion, electrochemical energy storage, green synthesis, and pollution abatement.

Research Areas


A partnership between researchers at the University of Virginia and the University of Houston has continued to flourish, and expanded to another professor at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, after the National Science Foundation chose their Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) proposal – the development of dynamically operated, smaller scale reactors that can process distributed feedstock – for a $2 million award.
