In our group, we investigate catalytic materials, in particular the dependence of reactivity and selectivity on structure.  We use a variety of spectroscopic techniques, most importantly operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy and combine the results thereof with high-accuracy kinetic data to understand the intrinsic drivers of catalytic turnover. This understanding leads us to the rational development of novel catalytic materials for multifunctional and multicomponent reactions in fields as diverse as automotive emission control, biomass upgrading and gas-to-liquids processes.

Research Interests: 

Catalysis, reaction engineering and spectroscopy.
