Research Interests:

We focus on semiconductors (bulk and nano materials), metals, and their heterostructures for applications in energy and environment. Rational material synthesis targeted towards desired applications utilizing wet chemistry techniques constitute the major objectives in our lab. Sensing, catalysis, optoelectronics along with fundamental property drives the materials development in our lab.
