Our Research

We seek to understand and optimize next-generation fuel-cell, electrolyzer, and related multicomponent energy-conversion assemblies, cells, and materials mainly through physics-based, multiscale modeling and advanced diagnostics of cell and material properties and phenomena. The work focuses on exploration of transport phenomena including charged and neutral species along with structure/function/property relationships and integration science of the essential components common to many of these technologies to improve device performance and durability. Synergistic coupling of experimental and modeling work advances our understanding of complex fundamental phenomena.
