Research Interests:
My research mainly focuses on the effective degradation of pharmaceuticals (e.g. Cefalexin, Tetracycline, and Carbamazepine, etc.) emerging in our environment using self-propelled micro-robots (e.g. ZnO nanowires) under visible and/or UV light. Additionaly, we use a diverse set of analytical and instrumental techniques to improve the degrading efficiency and to explore and unravel the degradation mechanism. Finally, we apply the knowledge we gained to instruct the wastewater treatment containing pharmaceuticals.
