Lab Information


Catalysis for Sustainable Energy

Dr. Siahrostami’s research focus is on the area of computational catalysis for application in clean energy technologies including fuel cells, electrolyzers and batteries, which will all be important components of a sustainable energy economy. Her group uses ab initio computational framework such as density functional theory (DFT) togain atomic scale understanding of the frontiers of existing catalyst materials toward reactions of importance for clean energy processes and ultimately designing more efficient catalysts for energy conversion and chemical production.
