Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

With M.Sc. in Wood Chemistry (2001) and Ph.D. in Surface Science (2005), my research interests lie broadly within interfacial phenomena occuring in plant-based materials. This includes surface reactions (particularly gas-solid), adsorption-based approaches and fundamental analytics utilising ultrathin films. The general aim is to develop new materials by fundamental physico-chemical understanding of plant-based materials (especially cellulose). My recent work involves illuminating cellulose-water interactions, new preparation techniques for cellulose nanocrystals, and exploring new materials based on cellulose-inorganic hybrid thin films.
