We are a team of researchers with expertise in electrochemistry, (electro)chemical engineering, and materials science focused on solving problems to unleash renewable energy and avert climate catastrophe. We are specifically involved in innovation and development of aqueous organic redox flow batteries as well as exploration of new methods of removing carbon dioxide from the environment.

We investigate fundamental questions of applied energy science related to electrochemical reactions and physical processes in flow reactors, and we also use engineering skills to design and optimize complex electrochemical systems. This group brings together curious individuals from a variety of backgrounds. We value collaboration and creativity, and we strive to maintain an inclusive and welcoming team that tackles tough technical challenges together.

The Aziz lab takes ECS Vancouver!

June 6, 2022

Eric, Jordan, Tommy, and Eliza (Gordon group) all presented talks at the 241st Electrochemical Society (ECS) meeting and had a wonderful time meeting collegaues, discussing new ideas, and exploring Vancouver! The group also represented Harvard's new ECS Student Chapter at the meeting. Now we are back in the lab and energized by a new perspective on our projects!

Congratulations on your thesis, Naphtal!

April 21, 2022
We are so proud of Naphtal for his work on a challenging senior thesis! Naphtal joined our group in Spring 2020, and since then his curiosity and insightful questions in the lab have helped us all learn together. We will miss him but we are excited to see what his future holds!
