Welcome to our group homepage!

We are an international and multicultural research team working on sustainable materials for renwable energy applications.  Our research is centred around the production and advanced characterisation of sustainable materials produced from abundant, low cost precursors using low energy consumption manufacturing techniques and their application in renewable energy technologies. We are particularly interested in understanding the relationships between material’s structure at different length scales and their performance in various energy and environmental applications.

The motivation behind our research is solving societal challenges without compromising the environment. We work on the production of sustainable materials and their fundamentals applied across several pillars:

  • research activitiesEnergy Storage
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Gas storage and conversion
  • Biomass to desired products
  • Fluorescence carbon (quantum) dots technologies

For more details regarding our research please check our RESEARCH section as well as some of our PUBLICATIONS .
