Research Overview

Our mission is to develop transformative electrochemical technologies that enable a sustainable energy economy. Our approach is interdisciplinary as we draw from chemical engineering, materials science, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, mechanical engineering, and economics to develop new materials, processes, and devices harnessing electrochemical phenomena.  We are particularly interested in understanding and controlling the fundamental processes that define the performance, cost, and lifetime of present-day and next-generation electrochemical systems. Presently, we are pursuing research on redox flow batteries for grid storage and on electrochemical upgrading of low-value feedstocks.
