Our group focuses on the development and understanding of new hybrid, oxide, and nano-structured catalysts for a number of transformations relevant to energy and fuels, emissions and environmental catalysis, and industrial chemical processes. 

Special attention is paid to developing synthesis-structure-function relationships for supported oxides. A guiding principle is that combining atom-precise syntheses with mechanistic investigations will improve the rational design and selection of new catalysts.
