CEI-related research interests: Electrochormic windows (ECW) and energy-harvesting ECW, thermoelectric materials and devices, hydrogen-energy harvesting and dye-sensitized solar energy system
Principal Oceanographer, Applied Physics Lab and Assistant Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering
Member, Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC)
CEI-related research interests: field measurements supporting wave and tidal energy conversion.
Assistant Professor, Chemistry
CEI-related research interests: The Xiao lab is a synthetic inorganic and materials chemistry group at the University of Washington. We are interested in how controlling both the local and long range self-assembly and structure of porous materials can lead to enhanced transport properties, new catalytic activity, and novel emergent behavior.
