Dr. Lin’s current research activities are focusing on coupling chemical processes with novel material systems for renewable energy and clean fuel production. In particular, the multifunctional heterogeneous catalysts are designed on molecular level aiming to develop the highly efficient and cost-effective process of converting solid biomass to liquid transportation fuels or renewable chemicals. Furthermore, fundamental studies of advanced materials using modern characterization techniques are investigated to better control the catalytic process and to maximize the overall efficiency.
