My research focuses on strategies to tune the properties of nickel, a cost-effective alternative to the generally more active noble metals, to develop more efficient catalysts for hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions. I am currently investigating promoter and support effects in CO2 hydrogenation. Operando spectroscopic techniques are used to gain novel insights in structure/activity relations for supported nickel catalysts.
