I am a computational scientist with a background in Physics, Materials Science, and Engineering. My research spans several aspects of surface science and engineering, from catalysis to functional materials to tribology.
The overarching aim of my work is finding solutions to environmental problems using new materials and chemical processes.
Before joining LSBU in September 2021 I held a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship at ETH Zurich.
My research interests are in surface chemistry, the main areas of my work being catalysis and lubrication science.
In heterogeneous catalysis I investigate the interaction of water and organic molecules with metals, oxides, and functional materials, uncovering the fundamentals of molecule-substrate interaction and designing materials and reactions for water splitting and degradation of toxic molecules.
In lubrication science, I focus on the development of lubricant additives, and especially corrosion inhibitors, friction modifiers and antiwear agents.
