Eric Kalu

Dr. Kalu is interested in the exploration of new materials functionality for the development of innovative device architectures exhibiting enhanced capacities and performance characteristics for energy sustainability. The establishment of fundamental principles governing performance activities of engineered materials needed for the generation, conversion and storage of renewable energy and the correlation of their surface compositions and molecular/atomic structures to their performance activities are important research goals. His research addresses fundamental issues and challenges affecting materials in the areas of energy generation, conversion and storage including electrofuels (bioelectrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide), advanced lithium-based batteries, chemical hydrogen storage, electrochemical (fuel cells, supercapacitor) and solar (photovoltaic) power sources.
