RESEARCH ACTIVITY

Her research activity deals with inorganic materials chemistry and is focused primarily on:

-design of nanomaterials based on metals and metal oxides, with controlled size, morphology, porosity and crystalline phases, for potential applications in the fields of photocatalysis, energy and optics;

- investigation of the composition, structure and morphology of the prepared systems by many characterization techniques;

- optimization and performance validation of the materials for environmental and energy-related applications.
