 Areas of Research/Expertise 

My work is focused on the research and development of materials for hydrogen production and storage for both mobile and stationary energy applications and catalysis. The main emphasis of research is understanding the phenomena and processes occuring when materials are irradiated with different ions, but also during mechanical milling. Besides experiments, I am using Ab Initio calculations.
