Surviving on a planet with limited resources to support our increasing global population is one of the greatest challenges humanity has faced so far. This dichotomy calls for materials and technologies to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs), without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Our Lab, at the Chemistry Department of Swansea University, bridges Quantum Chemistry and Chemical Engineering to design and develop Nature-inspired materials for a circular economy. We work in close collaboration with other research groups worldwide, and we focus on materials with applications in energy harvesting and storage, resilient infrastructure, biomedicine, and precision agriculture.
