Dasog group research interests lie primarily in the development of materials for energy, optoelectronics, and catalytic applications. We aim to gain architectural control over new and existing materials in order to manipulate their properties, thereby allowing in-depth explorations of structure-property relationships. General focus will be on the development of synthetic inorganic materials; understanding material properties with respect to shape, size and composition; and the applications of these materials in catalysis, light harvesting, and optoelectronic devices.
