Research Interests

I am currently working on a project about synthesis of nanostructured platinum free electro-catalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction by suspension plasma spray. The result could be useful for providing green and renewable energy as an alternative to hydrocarbon based fuels, by using electro-catalysts that do not have the expensiveness and rarity problems of platinum. I am also conducting a project about developing of nickel oxide nano-structures by glow discharge electrolysis.
