Academic Interests

I am currently working on the development of new materials (catalysts and photoabsorbers) and processes for water electrolysis. In the Group for Electrochemistry, we are also developing novel approaches for water vapor electrolysis and direct production of dry Hydrogen gas from atmospheric humidity.

Follow my current project, PH2ON here

I am very interested in new collaborations related to (photo)electrochemistry, (photo)electrocatalysis and materials science, so feel free to contact me.
