Research

Nanostructured materials often show unique physical and chemical properties. Our group is interested in a broad range of electrochemical, mechanical, and catalytic properties of nanostructured materials. We study the properties of a variety of nanostructured materials such as nanocrystalline and/or nanoporous inorganic materials, carbon nanostructures (carbon nanotubes and graphene), hybrid nanostructures, and nanocomposites. We also investigate fabrication methods for the assembly of nanostructured materials over multiple length scale for macroscopic device applications. We aim to use the knowledge of nanostructured materials to improve device performances in energy conversion and storage, and in bio/environmental technology.
