Welcome to the Lei Research Group

Our group is interested in the rational design and synthesis of nanostructured materials for the generation and storage of clean energy, production of chemicals and environmental protection.

We use a range of experimental techniques including atomic layer deposition (ALD), reaction kinetics analysis, in situ spectroscopy, diffraction and microscopy.
