Nano Energy and Environmental Catalysis Lab

Our lab primarily focuses on synthetic engineering of nanostructured materials with rationally designed interfacial architectures, including metal-metal, metal-oxide, metal-ligand, and metal-inorganic support, to achieve desired properties for sustainable energy and environmental applications. We predict, design, synthesize, characterize, and optimize materials for electrocatalysis and heterogeneous catalysis. Our ultimate goal is to help the transition of our current energy and chemical conversion schemes to a sustainable energy portfolio with carbon footprint reduction.
