Materials Nanotectonics: Designing Conductive Inorganic Porous Materials

January 2024January 2029

This Laureate Fellowship project aims to develop the next generation of conductive porous materials through an integrated approach which combines inorganic synthesis with informatics. Using this approach, transition metals can be combined with nonmetals creating mesoporous materials with precise control of their internal space allowing the correlations between structure, composition, properties, and performance to be revealed. This project is expected to generate new highly efficient electrocatalysts and energy conversion devices based on low-cost and earth-abundant transition metals. The project outcomes will position Australia at the forefront of research and development in advanced materials, smart catalysts, and renewable energy technologies.
