Research Interests

​​
My main interest is on the synthesis and structural, microstructural and electrochemical characterization of nano and nano-structured materials for application in electrochemical energy devices, such as fuel cells and batteries. I am also interested in the phenomena that occur at the ever-fluctuating molecular interfaces of water with solids, gases and immiscible liquids.
