Prof. Robert Laughlin from Stanford University gave a stimulating keynote presentation at the Thermal-Mechanical-Chemical Electricity Storage Workshop organized by industry, academia and DOE at SwRI last week. He made the case for how energy storage is actually a LOT about entropy changes. Rohini had a great time participating in this workshop.
Luisa Barrera passed her research fundamentals exam (RFE) with flying colors and will be advanced to candidacy. A great milestone for our team. Congrats Luisa!
Connor Boerman, a freshman UROP student has joined our group to work on microfluidic device prototyping and fabrication. We are excited to have you join our group Connor!

We are excited to welcome Pratyush Agarwal, a new PhD student that is starting in our group from Fall 2018. Welcome Pratyush!
Our new paper on "Evaluating particle-suspension reactor designs for Z-scheme solar water splitting via transport and kinetic modeling" was published and awarded the inner front cover in Energy & Environmental Science, Issue 1, 2018. This work was done in collaboration with Weber Group at Berkeley Lab and Ardo Lab at the University of California, Irvine.
TREE lab has a few open positions for motivated graduate and undergraduate students. We engage in computational and experimental research to solve fundamental and applied problems in the areas of heat and mass transfer, optics, reaction kinetics and electrochemistry. To apply for these open positions please contact Prof. Bala Chandran with your (1) recent CV and (2) a concise list of your research experiences that explicitly states your individual contributions.
