Research Interests

As a member of the Renewable Product Technology Research Unit, our research is focused on the use and development of catalysts in the conversion of biomaterials to useful chemicals.  To this end, we pursue hot water extractions of lignocellulosic materials and chemical conversions which include hydrogenations, ketonizations, and oxidations.
