The Bioinspired Functional Materials Lab (BFML) focuses on the development of functional materials and systems for energy and environments. Especially, we are interested in the design of biomimetic electrocatalysts, organic/inorganic hybrid materials, and unconventional energy systems for efficient conversion and storage of renewable energies, hydrogen production, CO2 utilization, and electrochemical biomass/waste refinery.

Open positions

We encourage passionate undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in joining our lab to contact us. There is no limitation in the academic background of applicants.
