Research Interest

My research focuses on the development of electrocatalysts and their applications in solid electrolyte membrane fuel cells and water electrolysers. Particularly, I am aiming to develop highly active, stable electro-catalysts based on platinum, iridium, ruthenium, and novel catalysts for improved efficiency and reduced costs of fuel cells and electrolysis systems. Also, I am developing functional nanomaterials for applications in advanced battery systems i.e. Li-S battery.
