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.
