Research summary

Prof Cora’s group uses electronic structure techniques to study structural, electronic and catalytic properties of crystalline materials, often containing transition metal ions. Topics of current interest include thermoelectric oxides, materials for multivalent batteries, graphitic and graphene-like carbon nitrides, and zeolites for heterogeneous catalysis. Prof Cora is a co-investigator in the Programme Grant led by Prof Rosseinsky (Univ of Liverpool), aiming to achieve integration of computational and experimental synthesis and characterisation methods in the design of new functional materials.
