My research interests include understanding the fundamental properties of micro-porous and meso-porous materials, and pursuing their applications in energy and environmental science. My current research involves the development of redox-active electrochemical interfaces for a wide variety of selective separations processes. In particular, I explore organometallic and metal-organic materials due to the tunability of their electronic structure and exceptional molecular binding properties.
