General research interests


Our current research is focused around the synthesis of complex molecular materials for applications in global challenges such as energy conversion and storage, solar energy conversion and public healthcare.

  Our research ideas revolve around the design and theoretical understanding of molecular functional components as well as their embedding into complementary solid matrices. This principle enables us to modify properties of a bulk compound by varying the molecular components, leading to a unique bottom-up materials design approach where molecular-level understanding meets application-driven materials design. As a result, a wide range of functional composite materials based on molecular metal oxide clusters become accessible, leading to novel applications with direct impact on many globally relevant research challenges.
