My group focuses on de novo design of porous materials.  We are exploring a broad design challenges to control the multiple structural property such as high surface area, porosity, crystallinity, selectivity, stability and processability of nanoporous materials. We are particularly interested on using highly porous nanostructured materials in catalysis, sensing and energy generation.
