His research interests include the development of hybrid nanostructures (0D, 1D, 2D and 3D) for various energy and environmental applications via heterogeneous catalysis. This includes photocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis, electrocatalysis, photothermal catalysis and thermal catalysis. Reduction of carbon dioxide, water splitting to H2 and O2, N2 fixation, H2O2 production and degradation of pollutants are within his research strength. Apart from energy conversion, he is also exploring the field of energy storage such as batteries. Overall, the research targets at understanding the fundamental mechanisms of these processes with the aim of realizing practical benefits and commercialization.
