My research is focused on the atomic-level design and fabrication of advanced photocatalysts towards various pivotal reactions (e.g., H2 production, N2 reduction and CO2 conversion) using renewable solar energy. Both state-of-art characterizations and density functional theory based calculations are adopted to unravel the atomic-level structure-performance relationship in photocatalysts as well as the in-depth and delicate photocatalysis mechanism. All these findings are concluded to develop the emerging high-performance photocatalysts.
