1.Design and synthesis of highly uniform nanoparticles as well as their derived hybrid nanostructures with increased complexity and functionalities


2.Investigation of novel properties of synthesized nanostructures in the context of nanophotonics, photocatalysis, sensing, and energy storage/conversion


3.Development of in-situ synchrotron x-ray techniques and in-situ electron microscopic techniques for real-time probing reaction kinetics and phase dynamics involved in the synthesis of colloidal nanoparticles and for in-operando characterizing the corresponding devices under real operating condition
