Research Interest

My current research is focused on crystallization studies, at the interface between physical chemistry and materials science, where events preceding the synthesis of functional materials become an important point and the area in which the key advances can be made to influence distinct materials behavior.

The project will address the existing gaps in the understanding of homogeneous nucleation mechanisms of aluminum(III) (oxyhydr)oxide — especially the potential existence of a pre-nucleation equilibrium stage at low driving force for phase separation. The Al (III) chemistry is important in many scientific but also practical contexts including energetic, environmental, agricultural, medical, and pharmaceutical applications. These findings will allow further studying of the influence of Ca2+ ions on chemical equilibration and nucleation mechanism and the potential binding of calcium ions to aluminum complexes. This is of high importance for the fundamental understanding of the aqueous Al-Ca chemistry that is relevant for early-stage inorganic aspects of neuro- and osteo-degenerative diseases.

Besides, I am interested in  how external physical stimuli would influence pre-nucleation cluster formation and thus, govern the chemical speciation and the entire nucleation mechanism.
