She was authored/co-authored >20 publications in prestigious academic journals and presented his work in >5 international conferences. These papers have garnered >800 citations and 1 of them are ESI highly cited papers ( (top 1% in the discipline of Chemistry). Together with Prof. Graetzel, she has successfully secured several grants both at national and international levels, including 'Solar-Bio Fuels' from Gebert Rüf Stiftung, 'SUN2CHEM' from EU H2020, '112CO2' from EU H2020 and "Methasol" from EU H2020.
