Key issue is the connection between defect chemistry and catalysis. This is studied in model reactions on heterogeneous catalysts (e.g. CO oxidation on perovskites) as well as for the technologically important oxygen exchange reaction of oxides with the gas phase, and complimented by ab-initio calculations.

Research areas:

Catalysis at fuel cell cathodes
Mixed conducting perovskites as model oxidation catalysts
