Research Interests

Through our research, we seek to develop an understanding of how solution-processed, nanoscale materials can be effectively incorporated into novel electrochemical devices for the efficient generation, storage, and responsible use of electrical energy. Our efforts are driven by the significant challenge facing the world today to develop clean, sustainable energy solutions.
