Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise: 
Analytical Chemistry | Electrochemistry | Chromatography

My research interest is in two major areas: Fabrication, modification and characterization of electrode with nanoscale materials for use in electrochemical sensors/biosensors and biomedical sensing including heavy metals and other toxins from the environment.

I also am interested in synthesis, electrochemical characterization of new materials for hydrogen generation for future hydrogen economy.
