Academic interests

My research interests are in synthesis and advanced characterization of heterogeneous catalysts, in particular acidic zeolites catalysts used for hydrocarbon conversion reactions.

  • Solvothermal synthesis of porous materials (Zeolites, Metal-Organic Frameworks)
  • Infrared spectroscopy (catalytic sites characterization, diffusion properties)
  • Electron microscopy, Electron diffraction and Electron spectroscopy (SEM/TEM in combination with EDX/EELS)
