Recent Research Highlights

Probing the mechanisms of liquid extraction with time-resolved nonlinear spectroscopy

Addressing chemical complexity with light

We are a diverse team of researchers seeking to understand chemical transformations, self-assembly, and transport at interfaces and complex environments.

Our current research focuses on:

  1. Understanding the chemistry of solvent extraction at interfaces
  2. Multimodal imaging of plant-microbial interactions and interfaces
  3. Chemistry at mineral interfaces for rare earth element recognition
  4. Interfaces for the direct air-capture of CO2

We design new instruments and methods leveraging the unique capabilities of nonlinear optics to probe and chemically characterize complex systems and interfaces.  Through the use of these approaches, we gain new insight into the chemical events central to clean energy technologies and environmental sciences.
