Research Focus

Our current research focus includes investigating (i) vapour deposited thin metal films, nanoparticle metal oxide materials, and perovskite type materials for their electrocatalytic activity towards the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in alkaline medium, (ii) membraneless alkaline water electrolysis, and (iii) the development of photo-electrocatalytic materials for water electrolysis.
