Student Seminar Series: Joaquin Rodriguez-Lopez
Student Seminar Series
Joaquín Rodríguez-López did his undergraduate studies at Tecnológico de Monterrey, where he performed research in electrochemistry. He then obtained a doctorate at the University of Texas at Austin. He performed post-doctoral studies at Cornell University.
Professor Rodríguez-López' research focuses on characterizing heterogeneous electrode materials for elucidating their function and generating new strategies to advance electrochemical energy technologies and sensing. The objective is to pioneer powerful methods of analysis at the nano- and micro-scale for understanding how electrode structure, shape and size, as well as the formation of chemical intermediates, impact the performance of materials and interfaces for batteries, electrocatalysts and photoelectrocatalysts. The Rodriguez-Lopez group combines interests in analytical and materials chemistry.
