Electrochemistry of Molecules and Materials


Our research group aims to train students to excel as both a scientist and a person.  We realize and value the importance of diverse backgrounds and ideas in generating new scientific knowledge, and in promoting a healthy work environment.  We value freedom of expression, civil discourse, and diversity in opinions, research, teaching, and life.

As anyone who ever took organic chemistry remembers, “pushing” electrons is the key to building molecules, understanding reactions and catalyzing new reactions. Electrochemistry is fundamentally a way to control how electrons are pushed – with the tools of electrochemistry, and knowledge of the thermodynamics and kinetics of moving electrons, we can explore new opportunities. This often entails development of new tools and techniques to probe reactions. Check out some of our recent work in this area, more can be found in the publications themselves.
