UnCommon Core | Engineering Materials for Sustainable Energy Sources
Giulia Galli, Liew Family Professor, Institute for Molecular Engineering
Climate change and the related need for sustainable energy sources to replace fossil fuels are pressing societal problems. The development of advanced materials is widely recognized as one of the key elements for new technologies that are required to achieve a sustainable environment and provide clean and adequate energy for our planet. Galli will discuss how the combination of advanced theory and computation with state-of-the-art experiments may lead to successful bottom-up design of materials for energy applications.
