Solid state synthesis using flux and hydrothermal methods, characterization of their crystalline structures and chemical compositions, and measurements of their catalytic and photoelectrochemical properties for solar energy conversion. We currently focus on the discovery and design of novel mixed-metal semiconductors with ordered or disordered crystalline structures as well as new carbon nitride phases and aerogel-type materials.
