Fundamental is a foundation of fun. Our research uses spectroscopic tools as a foundation to aid in understanding catalytic systems, designing advanced materials, and optimizing transformation technologies.

Catalysis for a sustainable society

We are developing catalytic strategies to promote environmental sustainability and a circular economy. Our work focuses on the transformation of polymer waste, such as renewable biomass and discarded plastics for the production of fuels, chemicals, and biodegradable plastics that can be used in circularity. Our group combines material synthesis, novel spectroscopy, and techno-economic analysis to develop new technologies for the conversion of the polymeric waste.
