Research: Develop predictive theories of surface chemistry related to heterogeneous catalysis, electrocatalysis, and photocatalysis using a range of experimental and theoretical tools.Research: Theory, simulation, and data analytics to understand and design catalysts for use in sustainable fuel production, energy storage, and pollution reduction.
Research: Heterogeneous catalysis/electrocatalysis (e.g., ORR/OER; High-temperature H2O and CO2 electrolysis; Energy storage in alkaline metal air batteries; Hydrogenolysis of plastic waste; Thermal chemical reduction of CO2 to methanol)

Research: We will develop new materials, find links between thermal catalysis and electrocatalysis, and use in situ spectroscopy of catalysts/ electrocatalysts under operating conditions to better understand surface chemical reactions.Research: We engineer and assemble enzymes into ordered structures that enable the synergistic action of multiple enzymes with complementary activities to achieve high-performance cooperative catalysis.Research: The Kamcev research group aims to develop next-generation polymeric materials (e.g., membranes and sorbents) for water treatment and energy generation/storage applications.
