We are interested in the interdisciplinary areas between organic chemistry, nanotechnology, and photodynamics.
Currently our research is focused on the three following projects:

1. Synthesis, controlled functionalization, and application of nanoparticles for biochemical, medical, catalysis, and industrial polymer applications 

2. Photo sensitized cytotoxicity of quinones as potential PDT agents 

3. Catalysis by carbons and deposited materials (Pd, vanadia, titania. etc.)
