Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion

Welcome! Research in the Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion group is aimed at studying the unique structure and properties of nanomaterials used for electrochemical energy devices such as batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, water electrolyzers, and other applications. Our group works to understand the synthesis, structure, and properties of materials to develop materials with improved performance, lower cost, improved safety, and reduced environmental impact for a variety of energy generation, energy storage, and and energy conversion processes. Our work involves three primary areas:

  • Materials
  • Spectroscopy
  • Electrochemistry

Research_OverviewSome of the research themes we investigate are:

  • Studying unique structures that are stabilized in nanomaterials
  • Demonstrating distinct properties of nanomaterials (electrical, electrochemical, optical, etc.)
  • Controlling surface and interfacial structure and reactivity
  • Understanding charge storage and charge transport
  • Characterizing and controlling structure in disordered systems
  • Developing materials with improved performance for electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices (e.g. batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, etc.)
