Research Interests:

Research in my lab focuses on the discovery and processing of electrocatalytic materials for energy generation and storage. We seek to optimize materials performance in a range of devices including metal air batteries, electrochemical double layer capacitors, and solid oxide fuel cells. We also seek to understand the connection between processing techniques, materials characteristics, and catalyst function.
