Research Overview

With increasing global energy usage, combined with intensifying anthropogenic climate change, the future energy system is required drastic modification: moving from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy sources. Although energy potential from solar and wind exceeds global energy consumption many times over, we are challenged to develop technologies for efficient conversion and storage of renewables.

Within this broad landscape, our group’s research focuses on science and engineering for decarbonization of the energy sector using electrocatalysis approach. We aim to develop efficient CO2 electrochemical conversion technologies to address challenge in renewable energy storage & conversion, electrosynthesis of chemicals/fuels, and climate change mitigation, as well as unravel the physical and chemical events at the molecular level during the electrocatalysis processes. 

Focusing on develop efficient CO2 electrochemical conversion technologies, our research projects are active in the following aspects:
