Research Interest
During my PhD (with Prof. Jens Müller, USASK, Canada) I investigated a new family of organometallic strained compounds, called Aza[2]ferrocenophanes, in light of their propensity towards ring-opening polymerization. In my first pos-doctoral tenure (with Prof. Peter Roesky, KIT, Germany), I worked with monovalent aluminum complexes, and studied their ability in small-molecule activation. Currently in Pietschnig's group, my research principally focuses on the syntheses and characterization of the suitable sustainable materials for the further investigation, aiming at the assembly of molecular materials at interfaces, via nano-imprint lithographic (NIL) technique. During the course of this research I have received the opportunity to work with organometallic polymers and transition metal complexes with certain photophysical properties. At the side of working on such sustainable chemistry, I am also busy in innovating the flexible and modular approaches to synthesize several phosphane ligands, with varieties of steric and electronic properties.
