Our group targets challenges related to the development of the new solutions to satisfy the growing demand for energy. We study complex phenomena in solids and liquids and at their electrified interfaces that are associated with i) storing energy reversibly and ii) efficiently converting electrical energy into fuels. Next, we apply the fundamental knowledge that we gained to develop new materials for batteries and electrocatalysis that can deliver improved performance, cost, efficiency and safety. We are also interested in designing eco-friendly energy systems that have minimal environmental impact.
