Our research spans the fields of solid-state,
physical, and materials chemistry; we explore new synthesis routesto carbon-basedenergy storage materials. We have a special fondness for materials with molecular channelsbuilt into their structure, allowing for interesting chemistry to take place inside. These materials are used tostore energy-richfuels like hydrogen and can also be used as the electrodes in batteries or supercapacitors.

Zeolite-templatedcarbon (ZTC) is a material of great interest to our group. Transmission electronmicroscopy reveals its atomic structure at the ~1 nm (10-9meters) length scale. Further computational modellingprovides an understanding of the finer details, at <1 Å(10-10meters) resolution.

Undergraduate researchers of many diverse backgrounds undertake research projects in our group: fromelectrical engineers to chemical engineers, chemists, geologists, mechanical engineers, and computer scientists.

We have a demanding, but fun(and safety)oriented research environment, designed to ensure thatevery student has a unique research topic and scientific hypothesis.

Relevant MONT facilities: electron microscopy, various spectroscopic techniques, and deposition/sputtering.Prerequisites: interests in energy storage and a willingness to learn new things.
