Weber Research Group

The Weber group explores electrochemical-based energy-conversion materials and assemblies across various technological platforms and applications. We conduct fundamental research on applied problems, with work focused mainly on exploration of transport phenomena. We comprise a multidisciplinary team of electrochemists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, theorists, and material scientists, including undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars. We work extensively with industry, academia, and national laboratories, including being key partners within the Fuel-Cell Performance and Durability (FC-PAD) consortium, the HydroGen – Advanced Water Splitting Materials EMN, and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). Most of our laboratories and offices are located in Building 70 or within JCAP.

Shiyi earned her PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her research during the PhD focused on obtaining atomic-level understating of critical interfacial processes on platinum using molecular modeling approaches, including electrochemical oxygen reduction reaction on platinum nanocatalysts and assembly of novel platinum nanostructures. In her free time, she likes driving in the mountains, playing baseball/softball, and building model kits.  
Congrats to Grace Anderson on passing her Qualifying Exam today! 
Sidd Rajupet will be working on experimental investigations of inks in M2FCT and H2NEW and John Safipour will be working on cell and integration studies related to CO2 reduction. Welcome to the group!
