Research Interests

  • Assimilation of various methods and processes including (homogenous, heterogeneous and photo as well as bio) catalysis and separation with sorption and membrane as well as chemical looping pathway for conversion of fossil and renewable resources into value-added chemicals/materials and clean fuels 
  • Synthesis of new functional materials including ionic liquids, organic frameworks, magnetic materials and catalysts with different methods including supercritical fluids, crystallization, chemical vapor deposition 
  • Understanding the reaction kinetics and mechanisms associated with generation of chemicals (including petrochemicals) and energy through various theoretical and experimental methods including computation chemistry 
  • Recovering value-added materials from coal and other mineral utilization by-products and co-produced water in fossil energy industries 
  • Water and wastewater treatment 
  • Bioresource production and conversion; carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) 
  • Development of renewable energies 
  • Computations 
  • Life cycle assessments of material production and energy generation processes
