Research Focus Areas

My research is focused on the development of novel materials for energy applications, including catalysis, energy storage, carbon capture, and nuclear reprocessing. In the past10 years I conducted both fundamental and applied research on a large number of novel crystalline organic and metal-organic frameworks (MOF) and membrane materials. The results of my research on synthesis, characterization and separation using porous organic and metal organic frameworks were published in more than 50 DOE technical reports and ~130 manuscripts in international peer-reviewed journals, as well as 6 reviews and5 book chapters. The scientific impact of my research is evidenced by over 6800 citations and H-index of 47 (Google Scholar) attracted by these publications.
