Background & Research Interest
My research focuses on the design and synthesis of functional hybrid materials with highly customizable structures and responsive behavior, with an emphasis on catalytic, environmental, and biomedical applications. Current work in my lab uses metal phosphates and phosphonates to investigate strategies to promote the incorporation and organization of diverse functional groups within a single material , correlation of functional material structure with reactivity, and the design of responsive materials.
