My lab’s overarching motivation is to discover and implement the chemistry necessary to transition to a sustainable energy-based society. Specifically, we are developing materials geared to convert renewable electricity and abundant building blocks to societally important products. Current Research: 1) Materials development - electrocatalysts ranging from heterogeneous to molecular systems that carry out small molecule activation. 2) Electrocatalytic reaction innovation - new sustainable routes via electrification of chemicals and fuels production. 3) In Situ and Operando method development - visualizing catalysts and reactions as they occur for mechanistic insights.
