The Li lab focuses on the rational design and fabrication of functional materials using a combination of conventional chemical synthesis methods and 3D printing techniques. These architected materials could serve as versatile platforms to study fundamental science questions and open up new technological opportunities. We seek to understand and tailor the physical/chemical properties of these materials for addressing challenges in climate change-related research directions, including carbon capture and utilization, electro-and photoelectrochemical catalysis, and energy storage (supercapacitors and batteries).
