Research

I joined Professor Kanatzidis group in August 2014 as a postdoc. My research involves the synthesis and characterization of new chalcogenide compounds and porous materials applications for possible energy conversion. My previous research was mainly based on the bioinspired construction of hierarchically nanostructured materials for photocatalytic and photoenzymatic applications.
