TongLab is an ideal place for willing students to be challenged, well-trained, and highly successful through studying (1) fundamental electrocatalysis and electrochemistry of inorganic materials for clean energy generation/storage and greenhouse gases mitigation that are crucial to implementing the 195-nation-signed Paris Climate Deal and (2) chemistry at metal-molecule interfaces for many nanoscience-based applications. The research is at the forefronts of the fields and focuses on unraveling fundamental chemistries that underline the aforementioned functionalities through controlled synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials and developing and using a unique combination of several in situ electrochemical spectroscopies and techniques (NMR, IR, Raman, scanning probe microscope, and quartz crystal microbalance) augmented with DFT calculations. It truly is a multi-disciplinary (inorganic materials chemistry, physical electrochemistry, analytical chemistry, chemistry of organic- and bio-fuels for fuel cells, etc.) place where "learning by doing" is a daily practice, "collaboration & helping each other" is an instinct, "nothing is impossible" is a governing philosophy, and "fun of scientific enlightenment" is a perpetual pursuit. Consequently, students will have plenty of opportunities to learn and perfect the transferable skills that are essential for success in any careers they may pursue afterwards. As such, TongLab boasts many honors & awards garnered, scientific presentations given, and papers published by its members including many undergraduate students. We appreciate your interest and taking time to visit this site.
