About our research

The rapid pace of globalization provides unprecedented opportunity for developed and developing countries to restructure and grow their economies. However, society must meet the heightened demand for energy and goods through responsible, sustainable sources and with technologies that will have limited environmental impact, such as materials and devices for energy storage and electrochemical processing; novel methods of understanding the formation and impact of emission from energy and chemical processing on air and water quality; and new synthetic biology strategies for microbial production of fuels, chemical, and materials. We must create and improve the infrastructure required to ensure the highest quality of environmental and human health, which will require both fundamental and applied research in order to address current and future global challenges comprehensively.
