Personal profile


In general, I am enthusiastic about sustainable energy sources and materials, especially those that are incredibly economical and environmentally responsible.  I am working on Design and "Development of Gradient Aerosol Chemical Vapour Deposition for Green Energy Generation" for a PhD project.  I approach this with a bias toward the fabrication and characterization of a nano-engineered thin film material for enhanced low temperature hydrogen evolution during photo(electro)catalysis of water. The research initiative is particularly concerned with preparing ternary compound semiconductor thin films with earth-abundant, nontoxic, and affordable constituent elements for use in clean renewable energy applications, despite its technological orientation and tendency to elaborate the conventional AACVD device. The strategy being employed involves the deployment of dithiocarbamate based molecular precursor synthesis protocol to implement a scalable and facile (modified) aerosol assisted chemical vapour deposition processes. Possible outcomes include multivariate, multifunctional, and multipurpose product (material) and procedure (modified method) which can be useful in making efficient and durable solar energy devices, thermoelectric systems and most importantly, photo(electro)catalysis technologies to produce green hydrogen.
