The main focus of my research group is characterisation of catalyst materials, which uses atom probe tomography (APT) in conjunction with electron microscopy technique. The combined chemical and structural information can help to understand mechanisms of the catalyst materials, and guide the design to achieve optimal activity and stability.

I am also interested in structural materials, such as Ti alloys, used for aerospace and related applications. It focuses on the characterization of structure and chemistry, at an atomic scale, during the phase evolution, with the aim of unveiling the controversial phase transformations.
