The core mission of ECSL is to develop novel diagnostic and computational tools to understand critical issues in flow-assisted electrochemical systems and enable better system design. Due to the complex nature of these systems, our research is highly interdisciplinary and spans the interface of transport phenomena, materials characterization, electrochemistry and system engineering. Our core research activities are categorized into three thrusts, i) materials characterization, ii) computational studies and iii) performance diagnostics and system design. Currently, the research activities in ECSL are primarily focused on three technologies:
