Sustainable Energy Research Lab

“Energy and climate change are two intertwined issues of critical importance in the modern era. Here at the Li Research Group, we focus on the design, synthesis, and characterization of nanomaterial-based catalyst and reagent particles for biomass and fossil energy conversions, green liquid fuel synthesis, CO2 capture, and pollutant control. Our research also encompasses chemical reaction engineering and process synthesis and optimization. Density Functional Theory (DFT) based methods are also used to elucidate the particle reaction mechanisms and to identify potential ways to improve particle performance.”
