Dr. Anand Kumar joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at Qatar University in 2012 as an assistant professor. Prior to joining Qatar University, he completed his PhD from the University of Notre Dame in 2011 and spent one year in MIT as a postdoctoral associate. His research interests include nanomaterials synthesis and their application in catalysis. Combustion synthesis and microfluidic synthesis are the primary techniques used for developing catalytically active nanomaterials consisting of metals and metal oxides. Currently his research group is working on hydrogen production, catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide, oxygen reduction, photo-electrocatalytic water splitting and carbon dioxide reduction, solar fuels development.
