Our research group conducts the interdisciplinary application of chemistry, chemical engineering, and biological sciences to address the Army's materials engineering challenges. The current research focus is the development of multi-functional materials that possess both electrochemical and mechanical properties for lightweight energy storage applications. Using a biotemplating approach allows us to synthesize three-dimensional porous structures with tunable element length, diameter, porosity, and material type. The resulting architectures provide scalable free-standing films that may be used to simultaneously construct and power devices at multiple length scales.
