In general, our research is highly interdisciplinary. It involves the combination of Materials Science (i.e., functional and smart materials), Chemistry (i.e., molecular design and interactions), and Chemical Engineering (i.e., fundamental principles and operations). Our investigations range from studying fundamental physical-chemical phenomena to practical applications. A brief overview of our interdisciplinary research is indicated in the scheme below.
