Check out our recent paper on boosting oxygen evolution in Ruddlesden‐Popper oxides. Here we show how oxygen sites can be tuned, such that they become directly active in participating in the oxygen evolution reaction. The paper is published in EcoMat.
My design was featured on the front cover of Advanced Materials for our article “Boosting Oxygen Evolution Reaction by Creating Both Metal Ion and Lattice‐Oxygen Active Sites in a Complex Oxide“. The artwork could be viewed here.
I am a computational materials scientist, currently working as a research fellow at the Australian National University. Working at the nexus of materials’ chemistry, physics and engineering, my research interests align with several thrusts covering materials for energy applications, catalysis and fundamental physical properties of materials.
I completed my PhD at the Department of Materials Engineering at Imperial College which was awarded in 2014. I have undertaken postdoctoral research in the group of Prof. Udo Schwingenschlögl at KAUST in 2014 and Prof. Sean Smith at UNSW Sydney (2015-2017) and subsequently at the Australian National University.
