The main research areas of our group include the realization of large regular arrays of functional nanostructures and surface nanopatterns using colloidal templates of anodic alumina (AAO) and polystyrene (PS) and by other synthesis techniques.

Application of these functional nanostructures are the construction of high performance devices for electrochemical energy storage (sodium ion and potassium ion batteries and supercapacitors) and energy conversion (photoelectrochemical water splitting and photocatalysis), tuning plasmonic surface behavior such as surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) with controlled surface nanopatterns for optoelectronic and sensor applications, and understanding the physical aspects of various functional nanostructures by combining experimental results with theoretical simulations and modeling.
