Our aim is to develop a fundamental understanding of atomistic phenomena occuring at electrolyte-solid interfaces. The objective is to achieve extreme control over material synthesis at such interfaces. This knowledge is applied to the electrochemical synthesis of metals and metal oxides with tunable properties; a synthesis that in turn is utilized in electronic and energy conversion devices.
