About me:      
          I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Chemistry in Case Western Reserve University in 2005, and then spent near 6 years in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California, Berkeley. In 2011, I joined University of Missouri - Kansas City, Chemistry Department as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests include materials development and applications.
         Materials development includes nanomaterials synthesis, characterization,  and modifications. Applications include energy and environmental: photocatalytic reactions, photocatalytic hydrogen generation, electrochemical hydrogen generation catalysts, electrolyzers, solar cells, lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, and clean building technologies. Applications also include biomedical, and future cancer detection technologies.
