Research Summary: 

Development and advanced characterization of new carbon materials, new synthesis routes to existing carbon materials, low temperature H2 evolution from processed coal, catalytic gasification, and fundamental studies/simulations of hydrogen spillover. Recent collaborative work includes density functional theory to design new materials, advanced in situ characterization, design of catalysts from metal organic frameworks, application of novel carbon materials as chemical sensors and electrochemical capacitors, and theoretical considerations of adsorption.
