Personal profile

Research interests

I am primarily interested in the discovery of new materials and composites for applications related to renewable energies and the environment. For example, I am interested in organic polymers able to catalyse reactions such as the splitting of water in hydrogen and oxygen, or the conversion of carbon dioxide into useful chemicals, using electricity or light as power sources. I am also interested in developing new materials and methods to store and purify hydrogen as a fuel, and in the discovery of new stimuli-responsive, adaptive materials that respond to external stimuli by changing their surface properties, electrical conductivity, or colour. Finally, I am also involved in the development of new high-performance polymers for applications as adhesives and fiber-reinforced plastics.
