Current Project 

Understanding the surface science behind aqueous phase reforming (APR), a catalytic process for producing renewable hydrogen from biomass. The utilization of infrared spectroscopy can reveal what chemical species are involved throughout the favored reaction mechanism along with the preferred catalyst topography (edge sites vs. terrace sites) for each intermediate step.

Other Scientific Interests/Experience

  • Catalyst development for CO2 conversion into renewable fuels.
  • Chemical fuel production on extraterrestrial planetary bodies
  • Design and control of Generation IV nuclear reactors
