Our research in inorganic materials chemistry, photochemistry, and spectroscopy

We synthesize inorganic nanomaterials, functionalize their surfaces with molecules, build heterostructures from nanoscopic components, and explore the photoinduced charge-transfer reactivity of the materials we create. Our goals are to assemble heterostructures and interfaces with ever-improved precision and to elucidate the influence of interfacial properties and electronic structure on light-induced charge-transfer reactivity and photocatalytic performance.

Students working in our research group develop skills in the following areas:

  • Synthetic materials chemistry
  • Surface chemistry
  • Materials characterization techniques
  • Vibrational spectroscopy
  • Electronic spectroscopy
  • Time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Photochemistry
  • Electrochemistry
