My Research Activities

Dr. Toe is currently working as a postdoctoral research associate working on heterogeneous photocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis. Her doctoral research is the studies of copper-based photocatalysts with well-defined morphologies for photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical applications, while her current research interests are as below:

  1. Simultaneous production of hydrogen and value-added organic from photocatalytic reforming of organic waste.
  2. Photoelectrochemical selective reforming and CO2 reduction reactions.
  3. Machine learning for photocatalyst discovery
