I am interested on the water condensation and freezing on minerals, which are widespreadly found on the terrestrial systems of Earth and the atmosphere, as well as planet Mars using the vibrational spectroscopy. 

My postdoctoral project that funded from Swedish Research Council (VR-2018-06694) aims to identify hydrated minerals on the near surface of Mars to reveal the potential water resources, and life signatures for future human explorations.
