My Ph.D. study focused on solution manipulation of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and their applications in electrochemistry. Now My research focused on nanostructured nickel hydroxide for hydrogen energy production from urea electrolysis and graphene synthesis from coal.

Research Interests: Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and Electrochemistry: low-dimensional nanomaterials (graphene, carbon nanotubes, transition metal hydroxide/oxide nanosheets and their composites) syntheses and applications in catalysis, sensors and batteries.

All Degrees Earned: Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry 2004-2009, M.E. in Applied Chemistry 2001-2004,B.E. in Electrochemical Engineering 1995-1999
