Welcome to the Energy and Particle Technology Laboratory at Carleton University.  Our research is focused on micro and nanoparticle engineering with applications in process design and optimisation for energy conversion and storage, advanced material synthesis, novel hydrogen generation or carbon dioxide conversion processes, emission sensing and dispersion, and quantification of their impact on the environment.

We develop process design tools for scalable synthesis of nanoparticles with tailored functional properties and study how particle characteristics including their size distribution, morphology, and chemical composition are linked to their properties of interest such as optical, sensing, and energy storage characteristics.
We also develop novel processes and disruptive technologies for hydrogen generation and conversion of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane into valuable products.
