Brief Description of Research Interest :

My research focuses primarily on developing new architectures for solar fuel production using protein environments. These systems append native photosynthetic proteins with synthetic catalysts to produce hydrogen photocatalytically from water. In addition, I am investigating artificial photo sensitizer – protein – catalyst hybrid systems to produce hydrogen. I analyze electron transfer in these systems using a variety of spectroscopic and biophysical techniques including electron paramagnetic resonance, transient optical spectroscopy, and electro chemistry. I am interested in using proteins to study a variety of interesting challenges in energy, environmental, or health related fields.
