Next-generation materials for energy storage

Our mission

Paris climate agreement has set a target of achieving net-negative global emissions by the year 2050.
Our group works on developing new materials for low-cost and scalable energy conversion, storage, and CO2 capture to meet this target.

Computational design

Density functional theory and machine learning.

Materials synthesis

High-throughput robotic synthesis of solution-processed nanomaterials.


Li-ion batteries, CO2 capture, solar cells, catalysis.
