Assistant Professor


Current areas of research are kinetics of hydrolysis of microcrystalline cellulose to glucose using hydrogen bronze materials.  Understanding the kinetics of the hydrolysis of acetic anhydride to acetic acid while varying the dielectric nature of the solvent is also an area of ongoing research.  Projects photochemically and electrochemically reducing carbon dioxide to methane gas, formate and oxalate are also being pursued.
