My research interests are in the areas of surface and materials
chemistry, with an emphasis on the development of new heterogeneous
catalysts for the production of clean fuels.
Current projects are focused on hydrotreating catalysis: the hydrodesulfurization (HDS) process
for production of ultra-low sulfur fuels,
and the hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) process for upgrading bio-oils to
biofuels. Catalyst systems
currently under investigation include oxide-supported metal phosphides.
