"Energy conversion and storage are more important today than at any time in human history. Our research interests focus primarily on design and synthesis of nanostructured materials for solving critical issues in producing solar fuels through artificial photosynthetic systems and developing next generation Li-ion batteries. In our lab, we combine catalysis, materials science and electrochemistry, and by doing so are able to address the exciting scientific challenges that occur in the field of energy conversion and storage. Breakthrough in this field is crucial for us to tackle global warming by providing the society with clean, sustainable, and environmental friendly energy supplies and zero CO2 emission electric vehicles with advanced batteries."
