Research vision and themes
Research in the group undertakes the synthesis of bespoke nanomaterials using biologically inspired green routes.
The group aims to demonstrate potential of green methods for nanomaterials synthesis by realisation of their real-life applications. Current projects in his group are focussed on developing application of green nanomaterials in four distinct sectors: Green routes to energy storage materials.
Technologies allowing scaled-up continuous manufacturing of these novel materials are also being developed.
Focus is on increasing technology readiness level (TRL) for new developments and delivering technologies that are ready for commercialisation.
Significant funding awards from EPSRC, Charity and industry. Key funding scheme include:
