Academic Interests

I am currently working on solar-based water splitting and hydrogen production from a novel hybrid photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell which utilizes engineered hydrogenases as biocatalysts.

My role within the PH2BioCat project is the fabrication and characterization of nanoscale TiO2-based photo-anodes for efficient light harvesting and water splitting, under UV and visible irradiation.

Research Interests

  • Photoelectrochemistry of Semiconductors/Photoelectrochemical Solar Cells.
  • Photoelectrocatalytic and Photocatalytic Hydrogen Production via Water Splitting.
  • Defects in Semiconducting Photoanodes
  • Heterogeneous and Homogeneous Photocatalysis.
  • Solar Detoxification and Disinfection of Wastewaters and Drinking Water.
  • Environmental Photochemistry.
