Dr. Shuya Wei


Assistant Professor


Chemical and Biological Engineering

Describe your research in about 200 words.

My research interests are understanding the fundamentals of electrochemical processes in electrodes and at electrode/electrolyte interfaces, and on that basis developing next generation high-energy batteries for energy and environment applications. My research also focuses on nanocomposites and biomaterials design and their applications in electrochemical energy storage. Current research projects include developing cheap and dirt batteries by using earth abundant materials that can capture/convert greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and at the same time generate/store electricity.

What’s the most interesting thing you have learned from a student?

Collaborative learning is critical.
