Research Summary
Our research focuses on multiscale syntheses and simulations of nanostructures and materials for energy/hydrogen generation, storage, energy catalysis, biofuel cells and biointerfaces. Fundamental theories are coupled with ab initio, molecular dynamics, cellular automata and finite element simulations for materials design and discovery, while selected materials are synthesised by mechanochemical alloying, self-assembly, deposition and precipitation methods. Materials systems cover clusters, metals, hydrides, oxides, metal-doped carbon nanostructures, and functional hybrid systems that show desirable properties for clean energy and biomedical applications.
