We will additionally seek to blend informatics with process design and experimental techniques with a view towards accelerating the exploration of synthesis, processing, and manufacturing landscapes. We will further explore how local features in highly heterogeneous surfaces contribute to functional performance in electrochemical processes through spatially resolved mapping of electrochemical activity, local atomistic structure, and electronic structure.<br></p><p>To accomplish these goals, the group will work at the interface of electrochemistry, data-science, and fundamental materials design with applications in areas such as electrocatalysis, design of electrodes for rechargeable batteries, and passive control of fluid movement through spatially controlled wettability.<br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassD67550D357DF4052B1F07512C1D53AA8"><p>#Indicates Equal Contribution</p><p>Davidson, R.; O'Loughlin, T.
