Research Group Introduction

The goal of our research group is development of advanced materials and processes for clean energy and sustainable chemical processes. In particular, my research relates to fundamental and applied aspects of membrane-based gas separations. Research interests: mixed matrix membranes, MOFs, carbon molecular sieves.
