Analysis of Complex Electrochemical Systems (ACES) lab
In our lab we study mechanisms within complex electrochemical systems. Practical electrochemical systems such as batteries, sensors, and fuel cells are often complex, involving engineered high surface area electrodes, starved electrolyte conditions, phase transformations, and interplay of the two electrodes. For these reasons there are significant deviations from ideal behavior as well as emergent or unexpected phenomena. We seek to understand these to engineer better devices for broad societal benefit, such as the worldwide adoption of sustainable energy.
