Solar Fuels Engineering Lab

Welcome to the website of Professor Daniel Esposito’s research group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Columbia University. This research program is centered around  electrochemical and photoelectrochemical energy conversion technologies that convert abundant and renewable solar energy into storable “solar fuels” such as hydrogen. By combining core expertise in electrocatalysis, in situ analytical tools, and chemical engineering principles, our ultimate objective is to engineer novel materials and devices that can more efficiently and cost-effectively produce solar fuels than today’s state-of-the-art technology.

——————————————————–Postdoc opening————————————————-

We currently have a postdoc opening funded through the NY State Powerbridge Accelerator Program, which is aims to convert cleantech innovations from academic labs into cleantech businesses.  Qualified candidates will have a strong background in electrochemistry, an outgoing personality, and entrepreneurial spirit. Research and development tasks will include electrolyzer design and scale-up, electrocatalyst development, and system design. Prior experience in electrocatalysis, microbiology, water treatment, and/or entrepreneurship is beneficial, but not required. If interested in learning more about this opening, please contact de2300@columbia.edu.
