We are curious minds dedicated to understanding, at the atomic and molecular level, different types of electrochemical reactions frequently applied to energy conversion. Our mission is to answer fundamental questions and convert this knowledge into new technologies based on a synergistic combination of experiments and simulations. We believe that we can harness science and technology to help address many global challenges. However, our main values are always guided by free curiosity and admiration for the beauty of nature and how it behaves in such a complex way.

CO2 Reduction Reaction. We are currently looking for the development of alternative fuels to help meeting rising demand for a low-carbon energy future. Renewable and sustainable energy can be electrochemically obtained by CO2 reduction reaction. Its capture and utilization has attracted much attention worldwide since this process can convert it to a ample range of value-added chemicals such as carbon monoxide, formic acid, methanol, ethanol, and ethylene. Although still very far from mimicking this highly complex behavior, several researchers attribute this reaction to an artificial photosynthesis. We look forward to getting the best out of this process, designing new catalysts capable of producing energy-dense fuels with industrial and environmentally friendly performance.
