Join the lab…


Our work is extremely collaboratory and we always need energetic, smart, and passionate individuals to join our group. I’m always interested in speaking with bright young students about opportunities to study energy and avenues to pursue graduate school. Peruse some of our latest work on the publications and current projects tab, then reach out to speak with me if you are interested in our work. 509-335-1699
