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.

We are hiring for a synthetic organic chemistry postdoc position!

The Aziz Lab Returns to MRS!

November 29, 2021

We are excited to let you know about several presentations from our group at the Fall MRS meeting this year, and we're looking forward to (re)connecting with colleagues and friends!

Aziz lab talks in chronological order:

On Tuesday (11/30) three of our PhD students present new ideas for direct air capture of CO2. 
First up is Andrew Bergman, speaking in EN13.01 at 11:15 am: "Capacitive Deionization for Direct Air Capture of CO2—An Implementation of the Alkalinity Concentration Swing"
Also on Tuesday we have Toly Rinberg speaking in EN13.02 at 2:30 pm....
