Research Interests

Synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials for energy, environmental, and defense applications. Current projects include the development of aerogels and porous materials for hydrogen storage and generation, catalysis, electrical storage, and armor technologies. Also interested in developing aerogel materials with improved (e.g. mechanical) and novel (e.g. thermoelectric) properties to expand their range of useful applications. .
