Welcome to the Noh Group!
Research in our group focuses on developing design principles for renewable energy-relevant heterogeneous electrocatalysts. We develop model electrocatalytic systems that enable molecular-level control and modulation of the catalyst structure and the surrounding environment. By examining catalytically relevant thermodynamic and kinetic parameters, our research formulates structure-activity relationships that are fundamentally critical in designing next-generation electrocatalysts for sustainable energy and the environment.
Currently, our research projects center around two classes of materials: highly porous and crystalline metal−organic frameworks (MOFs) and transition metal nitrides. We use a host of synthetic and characterization techniques to understand the fundamental chemistry at the interface of these catalysts and the surrounding reaction medium.
We are currently hiring postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate students!
