Research Summary: 

Research interests include catalysis in fuel processing for ultra-clean fuels and fuel cells; reforming of hydrocarbon and alcohol fuels for syngas and H2 production; capture, conversion and utilization of CO2; shape-selective catalysis for synthesis of organic chemicals; and catalysis and reaction chemistry for energy conversion as well as synthesis and applications of nano-porous catalytic and sorbent materials. Current projects include CO2 removal from flue gas using molecular basket sorbent and solid oxide fuel cells operating on alternative and renewable fuels.
