Having sustainable, on-demand energy sources for stationary and mobile applications is a grand research challenge of the 21st century. New catalysts are needed that efficiently and selectively react with small molecules for chemical energy conversion, especially in atom-economical processes that circumvent or utilize atmospheric CO2 emissions. 

To address these challenges, members of my group will employ principles of synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry towards small molecule activation, chemical energy conversion, and (electro)catalysis.

I encourage motivated and enthusiastic students to contact me for more information about my research program.
