Research interestsMy current research combines natural bio-catalysts with earth-abundant metal oxides to develop the basic science behind artificial photosynthesis. Specifically, I am optimising the electronic ‘wiring’ between the water oxidation enzyme, photosystem II, and nano-structured metal oxide electrodes to establish new benchmarks in water oxidation turn-over frequencies. This is important for inspiring more efficient and cost effective photocatalytic water-splitting systems, which would help to drive the realisation of hydrogen as a sustainable green fuel of the future.
