Chemistry for Energy Conversion & Storage  

About us

We are a research group at Boston College focusing on understanding the science of energy conversion and storage. We aim to develop technologies that will allow for high-fficiency applications using low-cost materials. Much of our efforts centers around designing and synthesizing new materials with features in the nanoscale. Upon completion, our results are expected to change on how our energy is provided and utilized.
