Surface Chemistry at Michigan Tech

Surface science provides the foundation for understanding chemical mechanisms and physical transformations on surfaces and interfaces. We aim to understand the fundamental reactions on the surface of hetergeneous materials to uncover the physical and chemical properties for catalytic and environmental processes.


Multiple surface analytical techniques are needed to fully understand interfacial chemical reactions, explore how we answer important questions.


Our group attends select conferences per year and is involved in middle/high school STEM programs.


Our strategy encompasses designing metal oxide structures using bottom-up surface chemical approaches to measuring reactions on various sized structures compared to well-defined surfaces.
