  • Analytical Chemistry

  • Chemical Education

RESEARCH INTERESTS
▪ Physicochemical characterizations of diverse historical, archaeological, artistic and building materials. These encompass studies on the compositions of materials used, the techniques employed for production and the transformations\degradations of the materials of cultural heritage objects and monuments. The researches cover areas that have relevance to conservation, art historical studies and exhibiting collections such as dating, provenance, authentication, state of conservation, ancient technology, past cultural and socio-economical interactions, etc.
▪ Applications of portable and non-destructive analytical techniques for on-site investigations
▪ Development and applications of a combination of analytical methods (from laboratory-based to synchrotron and neutron-based cutting-edge techniques) for in-situ and micro-sample investigations on cultural heritage objects
▪ Major, minor and trace metal investigations in archaeological, historical, plant and environmental materials
▪ Diverse characterizations using microscopic, spectroscopic, chromatographic and mass spectrometric methodologies
▪ Applications of nanomaterials in conservation interventions and enhancement of the sensitivity of Raman spectroscopy (Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS))
▪ Applications of statistical techniques, such as multivariate analysis, on experimental data acquired using multi-elemental and molecular techniques
▪ Development of electrochemical methods for determination of metals at trace and ultra-trace levels
▪ Chemistry education and disseminations related to heritage science and archaeometry
▪ Synthesis and characterization of geopolymers for various applications
