Li, Ying individual record
Associate Professor

The research in our laboratory focuses on advanced materials and processes for sustainable energy and clean environment. Our group is specialized in synthesis of nanomaterials and multifunctional materials, catalysis and photocatalysis, carbon capture and conversion, natural gas utilization, solar photochemical and thermochemical processes, rechargeable batteries, membrane technology (wastewater treatment, desalination, drinking water purification), and aerosol engineering. For example, we have designed multifunctional nanomaterials to catalytically convert CO2 and water to syngas under solar irradiation, which can be further processed to produce liquid fuels. We also perform advanced microscopic and spectroscopic studies to understand materials properties, interfaces and surface chemistry.
