Innovative materials for environmental applications
Water and wastewater treatment
Energy and resources recovery
Energy conversion and storage
Our research centers on the application of innovative materials and devices to address global challenges related to water, energy, food, and environment. It is a two-way practice. Beginning with the challenges, we develop new materials and devices with rational design. Newly developed materials and devices are evaluated during applications, and the experience gained from these applications informs the re-design of the materials and devices. This design-and-evaluation cycle is integral to our research activities and allows continuous improvement.
