Research highlight

I have been working on how the molecular electrical status of metal complexes change during external stimuli such as heat or light. Electrical changes in metal complexes can flexibly induce structural and spin state changes, which enabling concerted control of a physical properties such as color, conductivity and magnetism. In addition, I’m also working on the optimization of machine learning-based molecular synthesis and biomss catalysis, as a mean to design catalyst materials.
