Our group is interested in the controlled fabrication, characterization, and properties of novel molecular, supra molecular, and hetero-structured nano-materials. Our aim is to lead the design of distinct, powerful and widely applicable synthetic strategies that span the continuum between the molecular, nano, meso and bulk scales, and that enable effective processing and incorporation of new materials into useful technologies. Our long-term goal is to contribute to solving important problems in energy and catalysis (for example, renewable energy generation, conversion, and storage), and also in tracking and biological imaging.
