My current research is focused onto the rational design and development of electrocatalysts for application in metal-CO2 batteries to achieve concurrent energy storage and CO2 reduction.

My previous research was based on electrocatalysis and its application for overall ammonia synthesis and aqueous Zn-air batteries. In addition I have experience in some side projects including HCl electrolysis, water splitting, methanol oxidation and Zn-CO2 batteries.
