I am a senior lecturer in inorganic chemistry at Swansea's recently re-opened Chemistry Department. Our research is based on integrating molecular and biological catalysts with nanomaterials into functional hybrid materials for solar fuel generation. Our work covers a broad range of energy-related topics including photo- and electrocatalytic H2 generation and CO2 reduction with nanostrucutred materials and photocatalytic reforming of waste plastics and biomass. We are also interested in combining fluorine chemistry with solar energy conversion.
