Ray’s current research focuses on: 1) Synthesis of catalysts by Atomic Layer Deposition, where the primary goal is to prepare high-surface-area functional oxides on stable supports for catalysts that can operate at high temperatures; 2) Perform selective reactions on biomass via selective hydrogenation to produce useful chemicals; and 3) Fabrication of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Electrodes with unprecedented control over composition and nanostructure for achieving high fuel cell performance and for electrochemical synthesis of useful products.
