The Teixeira group utilizes fundamental reaction engineering principles to unlock the mysteries driving kinetic and catalytic systems. Specific research interests relate to micro-crystallization of organic and inorganic materials to understand mechanistic crystal growth, and discovering new chemical pathways utilizing classical heterogeneous catalysis in new ways.
Working within reaction engineering allows for an expansive scope to apply fundamental approaches to diverse problems. This allows to group to study within the classical chemical space (Energy, Green Chemistry, etc.), while also exploring transport and materials related to more biologically related industries (Pharmaceuticals, Biochemical Synthesis).
