Young Electrochemist Symposium
August 5, 2022
The group shared our work at the ECS Young Electrochemist Symposium at UBC.
Congratulations to Kaitlin, Rida & Ujas, and Kaeden for winning 1st place, 2nd place, and Audience Choice at the poster competition!
Our interests lie in preparing and interrogating molecular and interfacial electrocatalysts for sustainable energy applications. We draw conceptual inspiration from enzyme active sites to target design of efficient, selective, and tunable catalysts. We use cyclic voltammetry, spectroelectrochemistry, time-resolved FT-IR spectroscopy, and SEIRA spectroscopy to gain a deeper understanding of relevant governing parameters and mechanisms.
