"One of the most important technical problems facing humanity is the development of a long-term, sustainable energy economy. In our research group, we develop clean energy technologies. We conduct fundamental research into the chemistry and physics of materials and engineer their surface and bulk properties to ultimately improve the efficiency of chemical transformations in renewable energy."

- Professor Thomas F. Jaramillo
