Research Interests

The utilization of CO2 emissions and water to syngas (CO+H2), which can then be converted by the Fischer Tropsch process to carbon-neutral synthetic fuels (syn-fuels) is very attractive as an alternative storage medium. The highly efficient electrochemical reduction of water and carbon dioxide with Solid Oxid Electrolysis Cells (SOECs) will offer an important contribution to the energy solution. To contribute to this solution, the elucidation of mechanisms and processes at novel and promising electrode materials is essential for a better understanding and material improvements.
