Happy #WomenAndGirlsInScienceDay everyone!
We're proud to highlight our hardworking women in the group, and recognize that we wouldn't be effective, creative, and collaborative if it wasn't for contributions from a diverse pool of researchers 💪👩🔬🧑🔬
One of our favorite traditions - the Lab Birthday!
Celebrating the growth and development of the lab, our wonderful students and postdocs (and PI!). 🎂
Another year in the books, and more fun science to come 🧑🔬👩🔬🧪
Our former postdoc & now new faculty at Queen's University @racheljbaker17 is looking for folks!
See the posting below for exciting research ⚡️👇
Congratulations to our new lab member Clara Seo for being awarded the CEMI 1st Year Graduate Student Fellowship!
(CEMI = Center for Environmental Microbial Interactions)
It was a pleasure to write a News&Views article on Fu et al.'s recent @NatureMaterials paper!
Inspired by Ca-batteries, they demonstrated Echem N2 reduction using Ca instead of Li, opening exciting possibilities in this space! Congrats to the authors 🥳

Our annual holiday party started with a Secret Santa gift exchange and ended with our all-you-can-eat sushi dinner tradition! 🍣🎄
What a great way to wind down the year 😊
Congratulations to our summer undergraduate, Yamilet Rivera Cintrón! 🥳
She recently won an award for her @ChEnected AIChE poster! We're very proud of you Yamilet, and excited to see your next steps!
We're thankful for our hard-working little hand-turkeys this year! 🦃🦃
Our labmates have been hard at work at Brookhaven National Labs, using X-rays to peer into electrocatalysts under catalytic conditions ☢️⚡️
Despite the long hours, they pulled thru! Excited to see what y'all learned!
Our lab mates are hard at work @advlightsource shooting X-rays at our samples.
Don't worry, they're soft X-rays; they only tingle a little!🧸☢️
Have fun, @ChenyuJ98, @EvanVMiu, and @Chenically!
I’m on the job market at @ChEnected this year! My lab will develop the concept of “electrodivergent” catalysis, where we will design electrocatalysts by taking active sites from thermocatalysis and using voltage to enhance reaction outcomes. Would love to chat more! #AIChE2023
Critical news - Our paper just got published! Dataset and code to get your own predictions is available. Check out! #Chemistry #Engineering #MachineLearning
Amazing to see how the group has grown in such a short time!
Very excited and honored to join Harvard @hseas as an assistant professor in 2024. Looking forward to working with amazing students and colleagues! Thanks to everyone who helped me on this path, particularly @AtwaterHarry, @ManthiramLab, @ArdoShane, @CraigArnoldLab and many more.
Thanks @mpourmpakis_lab and @mckone_lab for an incredible graduate school experience. I've learned so much from you two and am delighted to have had the opportunity to spend the last few years with you. Still have a few more weeks of fun!!!
We sadly had to say goodbye (🥲) to two wonderful visiting students: Florian Grass (ETH Zürich) and Gangsan Lee (KAIST).
Both made great strides in establishing new Echem capabilities, & we've learned a lot from them.
We'll miss ya, but know you'll do great things!
Out now #openaccess! Traditional Tafel analyses neglect mass transfer and misrepresent kinetics in electrosynthesis. Researchers in the Weber, Bell, and @ManthiramLab use transport modelling and data science to extract kinetic parameters more rigorously!
In evaluating CO2 reduction kinetic data (eg Tafel), mass transport convolutes comparison across systems. In @Joule_CP, we show transport modeling & data science yields robust kinetic fits 👩🏫
Congrats @JustinBui888 & Kaitlin Corpus on a tour de force! 🦾

The electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2R) presents a promising pathway to utilize CO2. However, characteriz...
Out now #OpenAccess in @Joule_CP: An exciting new collaborative work with @ManthiramLab coupling mass transport modeling with data science tools to extract kinetic parameters for CO2 reduction! Led by my incredible undergraduate mentee, Kaitlin Corpus (1)
I am thrilled to be able to share a major story from my PhD @UofT, another collaborative project between @TheLautensGroup and the Roy group, now in @Nature! Want to learn more about our selective nematicide, and its mechanism of action? Check it out!
Congratulations to Minju (@chung_minju) on a successful and engaging PhD defense!
We're so proud of our postdoc @JasonSAdams! Congratulations on landing an incredible position at Rice!
Luckily we're gonna hang onto you a bit more so you can teach us reactor & catalyst design in the meantime 😉
Our very own @racheljbaker17 led us in some friendly (and OChem heavy 😉) chem-petition on Friday!
These Fundamental Fridays provide us a great platform to learn new concepts, share expertise, and have FUN!
The Manthiram Lab is now on LinkedIn! 📊🕴️♀️
Spread the word and give us a follow! Tell your mom, your barber, that guy you randomly bump into at the grocery store... they'll want to know! 🗣️

A big congratulations to Joy (@js_zeng) on her successful PhD defense!! 🥳👏
Congratulations to our three Manthiram Lab grad students who received the NSF-GRFP! 🙌
We are all ecstatic for @radicalchem, @thu_ton_2, and @jamesbwang1 for their achievement. Well done y'all 👏👏👏
Today we have our visiting student Gangsan Lee taking the group through x-ray scattering!
SAXS, WAXS, GISAXS, other-AXS... we got it all ☢️
We fully expect you to be an inorganic chemist now, @racheljbaker17!
Only metals from here on out! 🪙🤘
Here’s to another amazing @GordonConf! Safe to say I learned a lot about inorganic reaction mechanisms, and can’t wait to try some of the ideas I heard. Thanks again to @JenLoveChem, @TNTchemprof and @lucie_nurdin for an excellent GRC and GRS! @js_zeng
A belated congratulations to Joseph Maalouf (@jmaalouf23) for a successful PhD defense!
Happy #InternationalWomensDay, folks!
In the Manthiram Lab, we celebrate the amazing work done by our women in science/engineering, pushing the forefront of decarbonization for a sustainable world! 🥳🙌
Group Boba / Dinner outing to celebrate our graduate student @chung_minju visiting us from the MIT cohort!
Minju is in town for the GRC/GRS on Nanomaterials for Applications in Energy Technology 🙌
