Energy Research Area: Engineering Nanomaterials and Interfaces for Efficient Energy Conversion and Storage

Boeing-Steiner Professor
College of Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering

Our research focuses on the design, fabrication, and engineering of nanostructured materials and surface chemistry for efficient energy conversion and storage. The engineering of nanomaterials and interfaces is aimed at manipulating (1) the heterogeneous reaction phase transition, (2) much improved mass, heat, and charge transport properties, and (3) extra freedom accompanied with energy conversion and storage processes.
