We develop fundamental knowledge and technologies to meet an increased demand for energy with minimal environmental impact. Examples of current focus areas include development of active and selective catalysts, advancing new strategies in membrane-based separations, and introduction of next-generation semiconductors for energy research.
Won Tae ChoiAssistant Professor
Dr. Choi’s research covers design, engineering, and analysis of electrochemically active soft materials for energy conversion and storage applications. He was trained on advanced techniques, such as scanning electrochemical microscopy and ultramicroelectrodes for fundamental electrochemical analysis.
Dr. Choi is a postdoctoral researcher under supervision of Prof. Allen J. Bard in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to this, he worked in the corrosion research group under supervision of Prof. Preet M. Singh in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he earned knowledge and skills to investigate electrochemical reactions that occur at interfaces in harsh environment. He earned a Ph.D. degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Dennis W. Hess.
