oxygen reduction reaction, hydrogen evolution reaction, electrocatalysis

My research focuses on fundamental studies of some key electrocatalysis processes by combining experiments and theoretical computations. I am also developing advanced electrocatalysts for energy conversion processes like hydrogen evolution reaction, CO2 reduction reaction, and nitrogen reduction reaction at ambient conditions.
