Research Interests

My research area is heterogeneous catalysis, and I have a number of major research themes of interest. These can be summarised:

  • Investigation of metal oxide and precious-metal-based catalysts for the oxidative destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) for environmental protection.
  • Mixed metal oxide and supported metal catalysts for low temperature carbon monoxide oxidation for life-support and environmental applications.
  • Development of new catalysts for selective oxidation reactions, focussing on utilisation of short-chain alkanes, oxygenated compounds, aromatics and bio-renewables.
  • Improved methodologies for preparing catalysts, including novel processes such as supercritical methods for preparing high activity and greener catalysts.
  • Characterisation of catalysts using a wide range of analytical techniques and in situ methodologies.
