Our laboratory combines research expertise in chemistry, materials science, and engineering to address problems in energy conversion and storage. In addition to the cutting-edge analytical tools developed in our laboratory, we utilize the resources of the Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research and the Micro/Nano Technology Center at UofL to perform our research.
Our research has the primary goal of advancing the interconversion of chemical and electrical energy to meet the challenge of creating a renewable and sustainable energy economy. Our approach is to develop and employ high resolution, in situ microscopy and spectroscopy to understand chemical and material processes beyond the ensemble, at the single particle, single molecule level.
We are always looking for motivated and passionate people to join our research team. Prospective graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to send Prof. Wilson an email (aj.wilson [at] louisville.edu) to discuss available research opportunities. Interested undergraduate students can find research opportunities here.
