My research focuses on materials for applications in energy, environment, and health. Areas studied in my research group include: free radical initiated pollutant transformations, photochemical and photocatalytic degradation of pollutants, free radical oxidation of biomolecules, nanomaterials for solar energy conversion (photovoltaics), and nanomaterial-based drug delivery and detection of biomarkers. In addition, I am extensively involved in programs that provide early research opportunities for high school students and undergraduates as well as high school teachers.
