Summary: My expertise is in electrochemistry. My current research interests include the electrodeposition of nanostructured materials and bioelectrochemistry. Work on the electrodeposition of nanostructures includes the use of templates to produce materials with regular nanostructures on the sub micron scale and the applications of these materials. Applications include plasmonics and SERS, sensors and electroanalysis, electrocatalysis, energy storage and conversion, and the role of nanostructuring in controlling the properties of the materials. I also work on electrodeposition and electrochemistry in supercritical phases. In the area of bioelectrochemistry my work focuses on the direct and mediated electrochemistry of redox enzymes for applications in biosensors and biofuel cells, in methods for the modification of electrodes, and in the application of modified electrodes. In the past I have also worked in photoelectrochemistry for solar energy conversion and in gas sensor arrays.
