Research 

We are excited about studying nanoscale inorganic materials, understanding their formation mechanism and electrochemical properties, and developing their electrochemical applications.

A key effort in our lab is to use synthetic tools to explore and understand traditionally inaccessible or hidden composition-order-property space, and to implement materials-enabled advances in electrochemical energy storage and computing. We use solution-based and solid-state methods to synthesize new inorganic nanomaterials including multi-component oxides, chaocogenides, phosphide, and carbides. We observe their  transformation in composition, order, and property under electrochemical reactions, and study their applications as battery materials, transparent ion storage materials, and in capacitive desalination.
