Physico-chemical properties of nanocatalysts, structure-property function relationships in disordered systems, mechanisms of catalytic reactions, mechanisms of work of electromechanical materials (piezo-, ferro-, pyro-electrics and electrostrictors. Use of synchrotron-based techniques in materials characterization (x-ray absorption (XAFS) and emission (RIXS) spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction). Development of new in situ/operando techniques for studies of functional nanomaterials.
