Research Interest:

1) Polymerization Chemistry: synthesis of polymers with novel structures, properties, and functionalities; the design of late-transition metal catalysts, such as nickel, palladium, cobalt, and iron complexes, for copolymerization of ethylene with polar vinyl monomers.   

2) Energy Chemistry: develop new methods for conversion of low-value light alkanes or renewable biomass resources into clean diesel fuels.     

3) Green Catalysis: develop low-cost, environmental benign, earth-abundant catalysts for organic transformations.
