Research Interests

We do multidisciplinary research in timely subjects such as:

  •     Replacing Pt from Fuel Cells Catalysts for clean and low cost energy generation
  •     Design of sustainable materials for energy storage (supercapacitors or rechargeable batteries)
  •     CO2 capture
  •     Carbon Quantum Dots
  •     Biochemicals and Biofuels from Biomass

The main idea of our research is to replace scarce and expensive materials in key applications such as renewable energy with sustainable but highly performant alternatives . For more details check out our homepage at: http://titiricigroup.org/
