Welcome to the 2D Materials and Electrochemical Devices Lab

Research overview

Our group is developing new materials and bottom-up processing strategies to fabricate improved, typically nanocomposite, device components in order to advance technologies in areas such as electrochemical energy storage, energy generation, sensing and separations. We use methods in interfacial engineering to direct the assembly of nanocomposites from a variety of nanomaterial building blocks and molecular precursors such as polymers, surfactants and ionic liquids.

Nanomaterial production and intrinsic properties to films and nanocomposites with controlled porosity to advanced functional devices

Congratulations to PhD student Nikolai Burton for winning the Student Poster Presentation Competition at Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference (CSCHE) 2023 in Calgary. The poster was based on a recent publication in the Journal of Membrane Science that shows record water vapour permeance for graphene oxide membranes with potential use cases in enabling more compact, energy efficient membrane dehumidification systems: https://lnkd.in/ggab4qmk.
