Electrochemical Engineering Lab Sustainable Energy

Welcome to the Electrochemical Engineering Lab!

Research Vision

My research vision is to develop efficient yet affordable energy storage systems in order to protect the environment.  The efficiency could be related to two concepts: (1) the minimal usage of natural resources to make the system and (2) the minimal usage of energy to accomplish the same task.  In both of the cases, electrochemical model can be very helpful to optimize the design and the usage of the energy.
