My principal research interests are focused on the two areas of (i) high-current density submerged contact glow discharge electrolysis (also known as submerged micro-plasma, plasma micro-discharges, or nonthermal micro-plasmas), and (ii) low-current density electrochemical processes and devices for energy-related applications.

Specifically, I am interested in developing cost-effective and scalable electrochemical manufacturing techniques (using submerged micro-plasmas and bipolar electrochemistry) for designing non-precious metal oxides, graphene-related materials and composites for electrochemical energy storage, and electrocatalytic oxidation reactions. I am also working on modeling the dc and ac behaviors of electrochemical systems using nonlinear analysis tools and fractional-order equivalent circuitry.
