My research fundamentally focuses on renewable methods and feedstocks for oxidation reactions in the areas of water oxidation and C-H activation. Solar light is thought to be the only sustainable renewable energy source for a population of our size; dioxygen is a green and abundant oxidant. This poster focuses on the rational design of mononuclear Ir and Ru catalysts for solar energy conversion, incorporating these catalysts onto electrodes for devices; and the use of dioxygen for catalytic processes. My career goals are to continue this line of research through fundamental studies to understand how solar energy and dioxygen can be harnessed for devices that produce and consume fuels.
