Performs research to understand and control chemical transformations at interfaces through design and synthesis of new materials and studying the reactivity of natural and synthetic systems.
This section encompasses the following research groups:
- Energy Storage Group — Understand and control the fundamental properties and processing of electrochemically and catalytically active materials to optimize charge flow and functionality.
- Geochemistry and Interfacial Sciences Group — Understand and predict geochemical reactivity and mechanisms occurring at mineral-water interfaces and within porous media.
- Surface Chemistry and Catalysis Group — Understand surface chemistry and catalytic reaction pathways to design and synthesize new, highly selective metal, metal oxide, and supported metal catalysts.
