Prof. Atanassov materials for energy programs are focused on development of novel electrocatalysts: non-platinum and platinum-based electrocatalysts for fuel cells, nano-structured catalysts for oxidation of complex fuels, and new materials and technologies for energy conversion and storage. Dr. Atanassov bio-electrocatalysis programs range from enzyme electrochemistry, enzymatic and microbial fuel cells, and systems for biological and bio-inspired energy harvesting. He is a co-inventor in 50 issued US patents, substantial number of which have been licensed and are at the core of several catalyst products. He has published more than 380 peer-reviewed papers (bringing 23K+ citations and forming an h-index of 76), 20 chapters in books and edited a book on Enzymatic Fuel Cells. He has served as an advisor for 35 completed PhD dissertations at UNM and had supported 20 postdoctoral fellows.
