Research in Dr. Colavita’s group broadly seeks to develop tailor-made functional surfaces that can be used for understanding fundamental chemical processes at the molecular level. Focus areas include: a) carbon surfaces for investigation and development of photochemical heterogeneous processes of photocatalytic and environmental relevance; b) the development of new mesoporous composite materials based on nanoparticle technology for groundwater and soil remediation; c) development of mesoporous materials for delivery and imaging in biological media.

Dr. Paula E. Colavita received a Laureate in Chemistry from the University of Trieste (Italy) in 1998 and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of South Carolina (USA) in 2005. After carrying out postdoctoral research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison she joined the staff of the School of Chemistry at TCD in 2008.
