Main current Research interests:

  1. structure-function relationships of metal and metal oxide catalysts in transformations of hydrocarbons (selective oxidation, dehydrogenation, oligomerization)
  2. development of spectroscopic operando methods for monitoring heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic processes (also under elevated pressure) with special focus on simultaneous coupling of several operando methods in the same experiment
  3. adaption of (coupled) in situ-methods for monitoring catalyst synthesis as well as photo- and electrocatalytic reactions
  4. catalytically active transition metal centres in zeolites
