September 23rd, 2023
We had a fantastic time sharing our work at the UBC Chemistry Graduate Research Symposium.
Congratulations to Leo for winning one of the three "Best Overall Poster" awards!
Congratulations also to our fantastic undergrads Jared, Stephanie, and Ying for their "Honorable Mention" awards!
We are an inorganic research group with interests in the preparation and interrogation of molecular and interfacial electrocatalysts for sustainable energy applications. We draw conceptual inspiration from enzyme active sites to design efficient, selective, and tunable synthetic 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.
